I have a server 2008 system and every time it reboots I lose the gateway setting.  Can someone please assist with this?  We recently had someone change the role of the server to a file/domain controller.

There might be a policy (un)setting the gateway or any sort of script that runs on startup.
Check running policies using RSoP or GPRESULT. Use Autoruns for Windows v12.03 in order to check what runs at startup.

So you set it to a static ip, including the gateway, and it loses the gateway setting on a reboot?

If so, create a new user that is a member of the domain admins group, set it there, reboot, login as that user, and check.  If it still loses the setting, you have a major permissions problem!
