I have a small problem with server 2008 standerd R2
it has 2 NIC one ofr internet and other for LAN side for use with NAT routing

sometime when server reboots or is powered down the LAN side NIC which is assigned a static address sometimes gets a random private second address. this screws up remote access and the dns if I disable the adaptor and re enable it it works normkally again and only 1 address.

How can i stop it self assigning a second ip address to that NIC ???
its driving me nuts lol
