Windows 2016 Hyper V - static IP address changes on DC

Last Modified: 2020-11-25
We have a Windows Sever 2016; AD, Domain Controller; DNS; DHCP handled by Meraki MX64; Server has a static IP Address; we have several remote desktop users.
Tried to implement (add role) Hyper V. When adding the role and after rebooting server the static IP address for the Server is changed to another address and is listed as receiving it via DHCP; DNS also shows the change.
Tried this on a test server prior to live production server and the static IP Address did not change so tried it on the production server and now we have this issue; on removal of the Hyper V role the original static IP address returns.
Anyone have any idea.
