Experts,

Quick question, on my Active Directory 2012 (Brand new installation) I am getting some sort of APIPA ip address 169.254.163.25.

Why is this and how can I change it?  I saw it when I did the "Detect Now" on the GPO settings

I have a static IP address on my server, I don't understand why this address is showing up. I wonder if this is affecting my GPO policies that are not working.

How can I change this weird ip address to my static ip?

Thank you

Do you have more than one NIC on your server? If that's true the disable the second NIC.

Do you have multiple NICs? If so, are both connected, or is one not used?
What is the result of an ipconfig /all?
