To resolve it, convert the network device with the static IP address to a DHCP client. Or, you can exclude the static IP address from the DHCP scope on the DHCP server.
Common scenarios of duplicate IP address conflicts
Scenario 1A static IP address is defined for a network device, for example, a printer. When you install a DHCP server, duplicate IP address conflicts may occur between the network device and a DHCP client computer (running Windows for Workgroups or Windows NT).
Scenario 2You manually define static IP addresses for network devices and computers during a network link failure to a DHCP server. When the link is then reestablished, the conflict occurs.
