Windows 10 Switches to private network when entering a static IP address.

After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 our PC's that have a static IP address switched from domain network to private network and disallow users network drive as well as group policy access. When we remove the static address it works however, we need to have them statically assigned. Is there any work around to fix this?

As a workaround, could you use a DHCP reservation instead of a static IP?

I have seen this happen with other OS as well. Sometimes takes time for it to find the network again. Before they see the domain, are they able to get on the internet or anything? If not, check network logs as well as event logs on the workstation to see if anything is getting blocked.

You are very unlikely to get Public Static IP so that make sense. Better to always use DHCP for a laptop anyway. Far fewer issues.

Also, if you wish to share files in a secure environment, Private is a better choice.
