Server 2008 - IP address of 0.0.0.0.0
Posted on 2011-02-17
We have a server that is set to a static IP address. If you go into ipconfig the address shows up correctly as well as in Server Manager. However if you go into the adapter settings, the main IP in the general tab of the IPv4 settings is set to 0.0.0.0. with a subnet of 0.0.0.0. If you then drill into the advanced tab, two IP addresses show up - 0.0.0.0, and the valid one. IF you click on the zero entry and remove it, it clears it. IF you close out of there and go all the way back in, the 0.0.0.0.0 entry comes back.
Any ideas how it got there, how to remove it, and what might be bringing it back?
