i did not change the IP on this box. this showed up right after installing 1.8.1 on this windows 7 vm
May I ask you to try 2.0 on same box? 2.0 has different code that should have better chance of working. If that's the case I'll just backport that fix
The specific issue of picking up 169.254 addresses has been fixed in 2.0.1 via MB-7417. The larger IP address change after install still remains.
Siri, is this a dupe of the bug you fixed or does it relate to the larger IP problem?
Dipti - closing it as a dupe as the title indicates 169.254 which is the specific problem I fixed
The specific incorrect chosen range is duplicated by MB-7417 and fixed
closing as dupes.
