Windows Server 2003 R2 cannot obtain IP address from Router

I have a old Windows server 2003 R2. Cannot connect to any network. Tries to acquire an IP address but just gets local 169...  I have replaced network adapter. Tried a new router and reset tcp stack.

Where is the DHCP server located (router or on a different server)?  Are there enough addresses in the address pool to lease one to the server?  Try clearing out old leases.  Does the connection work if you assign the NIC a static IP?

Have you tried a different switch port/network jack?  Can another device pull an address from the same connection?  You double-checked that you have "Obtain an IP Address automatically" and "Obtain DNS servers automatically" enabled on the NIC?

Is the DHCP client service running on the system?

I did in fact try all of those suggestions. It does not work with a statically assigned IP address. TY

I have resolved the issue, although I have no idea what caused the problem. I performed an in place repair of the OS and that fixed the issue.
