Servers that have been set to Static IP are reconfiguring the ip to the 22.214.171.124 range after reboot
Posted on 2009-07-10
We have a Citrix Xen server from Dell that is the host for two Windows 2008 servers. When we bring the Windows Servers up using DHCP the servers get an IP address in the 10.0.0.0 range (which is correct), but as you can imagine; we want our servers to be static! Here is when we get into trouble. When we set the NIC to use a static IP in the 10.0.0.0 range everything resets and all is well. That is until it gets rebooted; then we get an IP of the 126.96.36.199.0 range when it returns.
I understand that the 169 is the address range that is the windows Automatic Private Address range, but why would it be assigning that when it has been assigned an IP of the 10.0.0.0 range?
What other info do you need to help us? Thanks a ton Experts!
