DHCP Server giving incorrect DNS?

I recently had a WIN7 client set up to receive IP through our Domain Controller. The Client received a good IP address (on our private 10... network). However the DNS (which should have been the DC) was listed as Is this a known issue?

I checked the configuration, IP and DNS were both set to automatic. Rebooting the client resolved the issue, but I can't think why the client would have gotten that IP for its DNS server.

Re: DHCP Server giving incorrect DNS?

These issues can be caused by a computer that previously had ICS enabled but from which the network adapter was removed without disabling ICS. Even though the network adapter that was being shared has been physically removed or disabled on the system, the service for ICS may still attempt to start. This attempt causes the DHCP allocator for ICS to offer leases to DHCP clients. To disable the ICS service, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
  2. Right-click Internet Connection Sharing, and then click Properties.
  3. Under Startup Type, click Disabled.
  4. Under Service Status, click Stop.
  5. Click OK and close the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
