I have a win2k3 member server with 2 onboard Intel PRO lan connections. One is 100mb the other 1000mb.
On the 100mb connection, I can set either a DHCP or Static TCP address and it works fine.
On the 1000mb connection, it works fine on DHCP, but absolutely refuses to connect with a static ip address.
I have checked many times the correct settings for DNS, and gateway, subnet mask, etc.
I flushed the DNS caches.
I deleted the ARP entries.
One error message I get in event viewer is:
Event ID: 4321
Message: The name "Server" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address 192.168.1.2
The machine with the IP address 192.168.1.1 did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.
For reference the 192.168.1.1 is my PDC emulator.
The other machine is a member server.
