    >>DHCP Client is not configured on the server but it's getting APIPA. 

    When a Windows client device attempts to join the local network, it contacts the DHCP server to request its IP address. If the DHCP server stops functioning, a network glitch interferes with the request, or some issue occurs on the Windows device, this process can fail.
    When the DHCP process fails, Windows automatically allocates an IP address from the private range 169.254.0.1 to 169.254.255.254. 

    APIPA is enabled by default in Windows whenever the PC network interface is configured for DHCP. In Windows utilities like ipconfig, this option is also called "Autoconfiguration."  The feature can be disabled by a computer administrator by editing the Windows Registry and setting the following key value to 0:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/TcpipParameters/IPAutoconfigurationEnabled

    >>The server can't communicate in the network even though its having a static ip address.

    Please first check your network connectivity.
    a. Type  ipconfig /all to view IP configuration details.
    b. Using the ping command to test a TCP/IP connectivity.
