Not sure how and why this has happened, but managed to lose connectivity with one of our DC's @ remote site after a reboot.
Now, cant get to assign a static IP to the VM because its using an old adapter somewhere, even after removing it from the VM and host....

Ideas?

You could have created a new virtual machine, DC and DHCP server, in the time, you've fiddled with TCP/IP stack.

I would start to create a new VM, prompt to DC, create DHCP server.

if your network stack on this VM is suspect.

But there must be an issue elsewhere (i suspect firewall - as replaced recently) which is killing dhcp etc...

check it out below link

you need to refer Jack MVP post

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/problem-with-windows-7-starter-autoconfiguration/443696f3-52b6-476e-b6fc-e18f74f9d8b4

Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt , and then press the Enter key.

Do the same process for refreshing the TCP/IP just replace the typed command with.

netsh interface ipv4 reset   press Enter

netsh interface ipv6 reset   press Enter

ipconfig /flushdns   press Enter

Restart your Computer.

It was caused by a firewall.  
Modus - this is a different question, but seemed to be the same.
