Conflict w/ IP address and Hardware add

By Jaydev ·
The error message is "The system has detected a conflict for IP address 176.16.22.22 with the system having hardware address 08:00:4e:10:8b:54. The interface has been disabled." This is right after a reboot on an ethernet network. We're unable tolog on to the network. Also clients are 95 with NT servers. We use DHCP and don't currently assinging static IP to sign them on. Looked at soem doc's from Microsoft and they didn't help! SO can you help please?

Try to ping that address. If you get a response then DHCP has given it out. Also the MAC address might have been given to two different NIC's in some sort of weird mixup.

Sorry, but MAC addresses are unique. I guess I should have included this before but that 176.16.22.22 belongs to a HUB. Don't want to restart or kill the hub.

Go to the DOS prompt on another PC on the network and type in "NBTSTAT -A 176.16.22.22" to figure out who's machine it is that's taking up the IP address. That command will give you the Netbios name of the PC using the Ip address. Hopefully you knowthat this is. Then go to that particular PC. Make sure it's not setup for static IP using that address. Run WINIPCFG and release and renew the IP address, or simply reboot the PC. Then come back to the trouble PC, reboot and see if it works. If not,you'll need your NT Administrators help to modify the DHCP server active list or scope or whatever you call it...

Good Answer buddy. Unfortunatley, we don't use static ip for any computer. It's a hub that much I know..the 172.16.22.22. We had already tried this and didn't work. But open to more suggestions. Thanks.

here is an obvious question, did you actually look at tcp/ip settings on the PC in question to see that there is not a static ip address assigned to it?

YES. One of the things we checked. Made sure no static IP was there already. We don't assign any static ip address. Only for test purposes. Thanks for the try. Open to everything.

Has the DHCP server been configured NOT to assign 176.16.22.22 to any PC logging on to the network?

Yes, DHCP is confiugred properly and we have scoped IP's out that are being used by HUBS and....
Thanks.

It sounds like your hub is not configured for DHCP, or possibly DHCP is not turned on. First verify the hub status and if it is a static entry create a reservation for it in the DHCP administrator. Either by activating DHCP on the hub or creating a reservation or removing the address from the scope, you need to get the DHCP server to stop attempting to re-issue the address. Once that is done you can go to a dos prompt on the workstation and type ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew and the machine will pick up a new ip address.
