I have a Hyper-V server that I think the networking components are misconfigured. Even when I've set a static IP address, the server sends a constant stream of DHCP Discover broadcasts (the physical address in the broadcasts matches the Hyper-V host NIC). The DHCP server is responding with Offer responses, but the Hyper-V server just ignores it and sends another request.
This Hyper-V host has 3 NICs, one of which is dedicated to management of the host, the other provides an external network for several VMs. The third (integrated on the motherboard) is not used. There is also a Hamachi VPN adapter although that is not a virtual NIC. Here's wht it looks like:
GTi LAN NIC is the one that matches the physical address in the offending DHCP packets. However, DHCP is disabled on that NIC, as you can see here:
So I'm at a bit of a loss as to where these DHCP requests are coming from and why. Any ideas?
