Two ways to disable DHCP Autoconfiguration

Disable APIPA on All but One Network Adapter

1. Use Registry Editor to create the following registry key, where <var>adapter name</var> is the name of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) configured adapter where you want to disable APIPA:

2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\<var>adapter name</var>

3. Add the following value to this key:

4. IPAutoconfigurationEnabled

5. Value type: REG_DWORD

6. Value in hexadecimal: 0 (A value of 0 disables APIPA support on this adapter)

7 NOTE: If the IPAutoconfigurationEnabled entry is not present, a default value of 1 is assumed, which indicates that APIPA is enabled.

8. After you make this change, restart your DC
