IP address conflict

By dglazewski ·
My network is as follows.
Windows 2003 AD domain with one subnet no vlans ip address range of to Have 2 domain controllers each running DNS, WINS, and DHCP. DHCP is set up so one server leases ip range of to and the second DHCP server leases out to Servers, printer, access points are hard coded with IP above

My problem is if a DHCP client is given the IP address od the client will get an error stating there is another device with the same IP Address. This has happen on 3 seperate pc over the last 7 days. I go into event viewer on each client and the error event shows a certian MAC address causing the conflict. The device with mac address causeing the conflict is a Windows 2003 server (not a domain controller) that is hard coded with an ip address of The server only has one NIC, and no VMware installed so there are no virtual devices. Virus scan on the server comes up clean. I turn the server off and I still get the ip conflict on a test computer I hard coded to have as the ip address.
If I ping I get no response, and there are no records of in any DHCP, WIN. or DNS server. I have no clue on what to do next. I know I can exclude from the DHCP scope but I'm thinking there is a bigger issue that is building or not being detected.
