I wanted to know if anyone has seen this issue before and can offer any insight into the subject:
I have about three machines that are presently picking up duplicate ip's. None are related in anyway with the exception that they have the same issue. I attempted the following:
ipconfig /renew -- did not work because they received the same ip that was given before.
All machines are counting on DHCP to allocate the ip's. There are plenty of ip's available that are unused.
The only was I was able to resolve this problem was to manually enter ip's that were not taken but I do not want to keep doing this in the first place. Lastly, we are working within a Cisco environment and we do not really have much access to the switches, so we are pretty much working blindly in this arena. This is also within a Windows XP environment.
