We have three servers with fixed IP's up until yesterday morning all was working OK and has been for some time. Then I had reports of no email coming through on closer investigation the W8K server reports that it is connect to the local network but has no internet access. The same on two other servers all internet facing.
For other PC's and servers on the netwoek we have no problems just these three servers, I have checked cables, Network settings rebooted the router, firewall and switches but still the same.
If I remove the fixed IP and let DHCP allocate an address it will connect to the internet which I dont get why?
