Problems with static ARP entries.....
I had a problem on our network with a server responding to ARP requests with
2 different MACs. That problem is now fixed as we added a different NIC and
disabled the onboard.

The problem above was casuing our Vista PC's not to communicate with the
server, so a call to MS had their Network Tech give us a work around of
adding a static entry to the Vista PC's for that server.

That worked great until we changed the server NIC's. I've deleted the
Static ARP entries with my Domain Admin account and with the users accounts.
The PC's will see the server for awhile then the static entry reappears with
the old address. So then they delete it and are good for awhile again.
Why does a static entry keep coming back?

RE: Problems with static ARP entries.....
I'll update this incase it helps someone that stumbles across this from a
search engine.

I tried every arp command I could possibly find in the command prompt
including re-installing ipv4, the only thing that wiped this entry was to do
a "netsh interface ipv4 reset"


THe worst part was that after deleting the entry it was coming back as
static with the correct MAC. But if you sniffed the packets it would show it
was using the old incorrect MAC.

Thank you! This command solved my problem.

I had set up a static ARP entry to my router (in an attempt to fix a bad firmware flash). However, I had to exchange the router for a new one and had problems with this old static entry reappearing in the table after each reboot. I had to manually remove it every time to get a proper dynamic entry.

Couldn't figure out why that happened. I had restarted all my network equipment. This reset command worked though!
