Yes, MAS is correct, your server has taken the APIPA IP. Please assign the static IP to DHCP server.

it's not a good idea to configure your servers as dhcp clients, you have to manually assign IP addresses to them!

Generally, if there is IP address conflict, the NIC will get an APIPA address even configured static IP
Windows 7 instantly displayed a IP conflict message where as 2012 server don't

Try changing DHCP server IP and check if it resolves the issue

After issue got resolved, check DHCP original IP assigned to which computer \ device

Uninstall the DHCP from it and restart.
Then assign a static IP and make sure you can ping that IP from other PC.
Then install DHCP to avoid misconfiguration
