Hi Expert

There is one laptop that keeps asking for the same IP address (x.x.x.x) even after we tried many options (ipconfig /release/renew, netsh winsock reset, reserving a different IP on the DHCP server for its MAC, rebooting). It seems some state got stuck (even after rebooting it).


Windows 7 OS client

Windows 2003 R2 OS server of DHCP server

Any ideas?

Does it show the correct DNS server and domain?
Have you tried a static IP #?
Perhaps the NIC is bad, what does it look like in Device Manager?

I just went through DHCP console and noticed there is a reservation for that IP

I tried to reserve a different IP on the DHCP for its Mac and did not work

Any ideas?

Do you believe is related to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/167014 ?

I would need to troubleshoot all elements (client, helper=Aruba and server).

I am pretty sure a MAC number can only reserve one IP.  Was the MAC in that reservation the MAC for the notebook or something else?
What happens when you ping that IP number?

Something weird is happening. Another laptop is ending up with the same x.x.x.x and it can't use the network.
