Windows 2008 and missing default gateway after reboot

I have had some Windows 2008 servers that are missing the default gateway after a reboot. If I set the gateway after startup (using ILO or a virtual console) the server runs fine but if someone does a reboot the server then it disappears again.

A solution used are the following:

  1. Logon to the server (using ILO or virtual console)
  2. NIC settings (and write down all settings)
  3. Open a CMD prompt with elevated permissions (“Run as Administrator”)
  4. Run the command:
    netsh int ip reset
  5. Reboot the server
  6. Logon again
  7. Set the correct NIC settings
  8. Reboot the server
