2003 Domain controller doesn't hold static ip

R2 64 bit

Roles = dns, dhcp

When I look at the properties for the network adapter it shows obtain automatically. I change it to it's proper address and it doesn't hold, goes right back to obtain automatically. I have a second dc running 2008 and it holds the ip just fine. Is this normal for a dc with the above roles?

It is the Broadcom Utility that is managing the network settings.

try to run first in command-line

netsh interface ip reset c:\server.log

then try setting static IP address again

You can also attach that log here.

1. Uninstall Driver (Add/Remove Programs) and reboot. (If it is a DC, reboot into DSRM)
2. Click cancel when the detected hardware window comes up.
 
3. Reload Dell driver via Setup.exe in latest driver pack.

4. Click Start > Run > Regedit

5. Delete:
HKLM\System\CurrentContolSet\Services\Winsock
HKLM\CurrentContol Set\Services\Winsock2

6. Open %winroot%\inf\nettcpip.inf in Notepad

7. Edit [MS_TCPIP.PrimaryInstall] section as follows:
Characteristics = 0x80

8. Save edits

9. Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties > General > Install > Protocol > Add > Select “Have Disk” > C:\Windows\Inf > OK > TCP/IP > OK

Note: You should be at the Local Area Connection Properties screen at this point. The Uninstall button should also be available now.

10.  Reboot (if it is a DC, reboot into DSRM)

11. Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties > General > Install > Protocol > Add > Select Network Protocols > Have Disk > C:\Windows\Inf > TCP/IP > OK

12.       Reboot

It sounds like alot of work but you want it to befixed right so there you go.

I hope that helps.

Hello,

In dhcp server, have you reserve that IP address?

Please reserve a particular IP in dhcp & then assign a static IP to your server & then check.

This is assuming you have a broadcom NIC only.

Yes, this is a broadcom nic in a dell server. What caused this and have you run into this before?

Quite frankly, your solution scares the crap outta me. But thank you very much. I am debating....

1. I can logon to server in question via RDP and the ip it's supposed to be.
2. ping servername resolves to correct ip
3. only thing is it doesnt show under nic properties.

So it's a problem, but how much of one?

Is this because broadcom control suite is managing the adapter? I'm not familiar with this at all.

It is the only response that is correct. Don't want the points just want to point out the correct solution.
