IP Address Not Sticking
I have needed to change the IP address of our exchange server. We are running Exchange 2013 on Server 2012, this is on Vmware 5.5. I removed the old E1000 nic and added a new VMXnet3 nic. I booted a server and assigned an IP all was ok. When i reboot the server normally it seems to go a little bit weird. On the console the server "looses" its IP. It runs dead slow and won't respond to my commands, after about 40 mins something seems to un-jam and i can use it normally. I do an IP config its show a 169 address but the NIC is sill configured with the correct static IP address. If i set the NIC to DHCP then change it back to static again all is ok and it goes back to normal, no issues. I reboot and we have issues again.
Anyone any ideas please?
Any ideas anyone please? This one is being a swine!
I would remove all nic hardware including hidden/disabled ones in windows.
Reboot and let it detect the hardware again.
Set the IP and see if that helps.
Had a similar issue on Citrix.
I think I have sorted it by resetting the IP stack. The annoying things is, when I am testing it with a reboot it was taking ages to get cracking with things.
