i did not change the IP on this box. this showed up right after installing 1.8.1 on this windows 7 vm
closing as dupes.
The specific incorrect chosen range is duplicated by MB-7417 and fixed
Dipti - closing it as a dupe as the title indicates 169.254 which is the specific problem I fixed
Siri, is this a dupe of the bug you fixed or does it relate to the larger IP problem?
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.
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
