Windows 2008 r2 server with 0.0.0.0 primary IP

I have a Windows 2008 r2 server that has 0.0.0.0 as its primary IP now.  Not sure if this a stack problem like Windows PCs sometimes get or is there a possibility that some program on the server actually needs that in place to function?  Everything obvious seems to be working fine on the server, it is the server side of the AV security solution and runs a few Shares as well.  And remote control works fine on it as well.  Anyone seen this on a server and know what my options are to repair it?  thanks.

Output of "ipconfig /all" might help.

Is the interface set to DHCP ("automatically") and no DHCP server is available to supply an IP address ?

If there was no DHCP on the network, I would expect it to use an APIPA address, unless alternate IP addressing was also specified on the nic.

Have you tried to go in to the NCPA.cpl control panel and re-specify the settings?

It has static IP assignments.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

It does not show up in ipconfig.  Just in the GUI Network properties.  Below is the ipconfig /all resulst and I attached screen copy of the GUI data.

I have not determined what is responsible yet, but there is something adding that IP address back to the NIC whenever I remove it.  I will post the culprit when I find it.

The reason for the 0.0.0.0 IP has yet to be deterrmined, but it is definitely not a corruption.
