An administrator deploys wireless access points across the office to provide wireless network connectivity to users. Each workstation receives an IP address via DHCP. After a file server with a static IP is connected to the wired network, the administrator receives an IP address conflict message. What is a possible solution?

An administrator deploys wireless access points across the office to provide wireless network connectivity to users. Each workstation receives an IP address via DHCP. After a file server with a static IP is connected to the wired network, the administrator receives an IP address conflict message. What is a possible solution?

  • Restart the DHCP server.
  • Change the IP address of the file server with the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew commands.
  • Change the static IP configured on the file server.
  • Connect the file server to the wireless network.
    Explanation:

    If an IP address conflict message is displayed, then a single IP address is being used more than once on the same network. To solve this issue, the administrator needs to give a different static IP address to the server on the network.
