DHCP Address Reservation Network Team Bad Address


Following Problem:
Unattended Setup on BL20p G2 with Windows 2003
When the setup is finish, the server logon automatic and install the SmartStart Agents. After this installation i create a network team per script.

i want to assign the server a ip address per dhcp via a reservation. so the server has everytime the same ip.

no after the crating of the team i have alwas badaddress on this reservation and the server has no network connection until i delete the reservation and create the same new.

i think the problem is, one of the teaming cards has the same mac adress like the team after the team creation. now the dhcp server think this address is already in use and makes a bad address.

as workaround i can use dhcp without reservation but, then everytime i setup the server, i get another address because the old was marked as bad address

any ideas?

thanks marc
