  • Hi,

     

    Do you mean that you get a message saying that the computer is using dynamic IP address when you try to install the DNS/DHCP roles? Please ensure that you have assigned a static IP address for each network adapter.

     

    You may refer to the following article for the detailed steps:

     

    Configuring a DHCP server static IP address

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755277.aspx

     

    If the issue persists, please run ipconfig /all on the server and post the output here for further research.

     

    Thanks.

  • THIS MAY OR MAY NOT BE RELATED BUT I FOUND THIS WEBSITE THROUGH MY VARIOUS SEARCHES:

    the full troubleshooting technique can be found on my website page.

    http://douglubey.com/MicosoftServer2008CanNotViewStaticIpAdressInTcpIpProperties.aspx

    PROBLEM DESCRIBED:  THE USER INTERFACE ON THE NETWORK CARD DOES NOT SHOW THAT WE HAVE ASSIGNED A STATIC IP ADDRESS AND AT SOME POINTS IN TROUBLESHOOTING IT WOULD NOT EVEN PICK UP A NETWORK CARD ADDRESS AND  EVEN AT ONE POINT IT HAD TWO IP ADDRESSES ASSIGNED TO THE SAME NETWORK CARD.

     

     

    PROBLEM RESOLUTION FOUND ON DAY 7 by a Dell representative:

     

    The Issue:

    a.      A static IP address is set, but the NIC shows “Obtain an IP address automatically.”

    b.      Running IPConfig /All shows the static IP address.

    c.      The Registry shows the static configuration under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}

     What to do:  

    a.      Remove the bad configuration from the Registry.

    How to do it: 

    a.      Start à Run à RegEdit

    b.      Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network

    c.      Delete the Config key

    d.      Click Yes to delete the key.

    e.      Open Network Connections

    f.       Right-Click Local Area Connection

    g.      Select Properties

     

    h.      Click OK

    Note:    This process rewrites the Config key without requiring a reboot.

     

    i.       Reference:

    i.        http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937056

    ii.      “The Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box displays the default IP address settings after you manually configure a static IP address in Windows 2000 Server or in Windows Server 2003”

     

    Note:    I also rebooted the machine and it stuck

    Note:   THIS PROCEDURE DOES NOT REPORT FOR WINDOW SERVER 2008 but it works for WINDOWS SERVER 2008 32 bit

     

    VARIOUS SEARCHES I PERFORMED IN YAHOO/GOOGLE/ASK/BING to find a resolution
