I have a DNS server running on Windows 2008 R2.  It was originally configured with an IP address of X.X.X.3 and changed to X.X.X.4.

At random times the server is reverting to it old address.  It actually has to IP addresses listed in the TCP/IP configuration. The X.X.X.3 on the top and below it the X.X.X.4.  Removing the X.3 things work again, until it happens again.  The server is also DHCP.

What am I missing?
