Question about Dell PowerEdge 2950 (becwfk1_6) Server
We are having one Poweredge 2950 dell server which is a part of domain. We are using Windows 2003 server OS. Now problem is, whenever we are trying to restart the server in LAN by using a static IP, server is hanged after boot the machine in "applying computer settings" stage. When we remove the lan cable it starts successfully but some progams are not working. And we can ping other PC from the sever but from other PC (Same domain) can not ping.
Kindly provide me the solution.
This sounds like a common DNS issue. You need to make sure that this server has a local DNS server like 192.168.1.1 and not an external one like 188.8.131.52.
Your server is trying to find the domain controller and with the external DNS it cannot. This is why when you remove the cable it loads correctly. it assumes that it is disconnected from the local network and it continues without the domain controller. otherwise it waits for the external dns to time out.

Perhaps there is a IP conflict?
Why not set up DHCP with IP reservations for your servers? I have no idea how big your setup is. We have a few of these servers at my work and have experienced no problems.
Also i believe this server may have 2 network interface cards, make sure you have the IP set to the correct adapter, and dont plug them both in with the same IP address.
How long have you left the server at "applying computer settings" before plulling the network cable?
