NIC Teaming Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our workstations are configured with NIC teaming.  The IP address is a static IP.  I rebooted a couple of workstations and on reboot received a 169 address.  Ran ipconfig /all and noticed that the static ip was listed as duplicate and the 169 address was listed as preferred.

    I checked the IP was not in use anywhere and was not a duplicate.  Then started testing by rebooting workstations, some of the workstations experienced this behavior and others did not.  All workstations are in the same network segment.

    After multiple reboots the workstations that received the 169 address finally had the original static ip and the 169 address was gone.

    Does anyone have any idea what would be causing this issue.  We are not using DHCP in our network.
