Hey Tom - in checking this I noticed that /etc/network/interfaces existed on the problem VOXL and not on the other two, so I deleted it and now I can set a static IP that will reset and be assigned a DHCP IP after reboot. Thanks!

RE: DHCP/Static IP Ethernet Reconfiguration
Hi Tom, That's actually not what I'm looking for. I'm trying to understand:
a. What may have been overwritten or changed as a result of that command so that the VOXL is no longer assigned an IP by our DHCP server. Our other two VOXL 2's where we have not run that command are assigned IP's by the DHCP server with no issues.
b. What process or command you would recommend for setting a static IP on the VOXL's in the future that will not interfere with switching back to DHCP regularly.
DHCP/Static IP Ethernet Reconfiguration
We set one of our VOXL 2's to use a static IP (
sudo ifconfig eth0 X.X.X.X. netmask Y.Y.Y.Y) and now cannot get it back to being assigned an IP by the DHCP server - it now boots and stays on 169.254.4.X. Our other VOXL 2's are assigned addresses by the DHCP server out of the box; we have installed netplan and attempted to switch between DHCP and a static IP via netplan but are only getting DHCP. How can we fix this so that it will get a DHCP address assigned, and what method should we use to switch between a static IP and DHCP in the future?
