DHCP Discovery fresh out the box

Hi All,

When booting up an Aruba Instant straight out of the box, why does it force itself to want a DHCP address even though on initial startup the boot has been broken and a static IP address has been configured?

Why does it ignore the static IP? And is there a command to force it to ignore the DHCP discovery?

I have noticed this using an instant 275 and 305.

What commands did you use to set that IP address?

I could see the IP had entered into the static IP address section of the access point, but it was still using a dhcp address that it had picked up from the server
