I have setup my NAS with the IP address 10.0.0.10 (which is not in the scope of my DHCP Server - 10.0.0.100 to 10.0.0.199) and have confirmed the netmask, gateway and DNS server are all correct - but hours after everything is up and running, I find my NAS "forgets" it has a Static IP address set and grabs an IP Address from my DHCP Server for some reason. When I log into my NAS, I can clearly see that it is set for a Static IP address of 10.0.0.10, but it is currently using an 10.0.0.192 address (DHCP assigned). As soon as I hit save on the options pane too, it jumps back to the 10.0.0.10 Statically set address.
Here is a screenshot of the Network tab on my NAS:
Why is this happening? If it's set for a static IP address, why is it suddenly grabbing an IP address from my DHCP server?

Yes - newest firmware (1.02.03).
What's interesting is I extracted the logs off of it and the daemon.log file it has the following:
....So something is going on.

I just arrived home from work and found my NAS back on a DHCP assigned IP address. Once I restarted the device it went back on the static IP address.
We'll see if this restart fixes anything - but I doubt it.

Thank you TonyPh12345 - the DHCP Deamon seems to have been disabled after a restart. Been running it for the week with no issues.
