HP CD-ROM Server - The CD-ROM Server Will Not Retain the Manually Specified IP Address
When manually specifying an IP address through ARP (Address Resolution Protocol), config.ini file, or web browser configuration page, the IP address keeps defaulting to another IP address on the network. If an automated method for obtaining an IP address (that is, RARP, BOOTP, or DHCP) is present on the network, the CD-ROM Server by default has DHCP, RARP, and BOOTP enabled.
Disable DHCP, RARP, and BOOTP. Enter a static IP Address, restart CD-ROM Server.
note:If you are using a web browser to configure the CD-ROM Server, type in the IP address currently used by the CD-ROM Server. Select the configuration tab then select the IP heading. Set the Internet Address to the desired static IP Address with BOOTPEnable, DHCPEnable, and RARPEnable to "no", and then select "Submit IP settings". Select the Server heading, set Restart to "yes" and select "submit server settings". If you are using the config.ini file to configure the CD-ROM Server, under the [Server] heading, set Restart to "yes". Under the [IP] heading set the InternetAddress to the static IP Address desired and BOOTPEnable, DHCPEnable, and RARPEnable to "no". Select file, save.
