Embedded machine losing IP address after reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an industrial PC running a trial version of Windows Embedded Standard. It has a hard-coded IP address, and is scheduled to reboot every night. Every so often (3 times in the last 2 weeks), the device will reboot, but another IP address will get assigned to the device. This device is NOT set up for DHCP. Looking through event viewer, I see a warning after the scheduled reboot stating that the device cannot resolve our web address (which is expected since it no longer holds a valid IP). There is an error following that message stating that "The Superfetch service terminated with the following error: The system cannot find the file specified".

    Rebooting the device again often resolves the issue - the device takes the correct IP address.

    Has anyone ever run into an issue where a device running this OS loses its IP address after reboot?
