Sever set to static IP in DNS on Domain controller, put into DHPC

We have two severs set as Domain Controllers. On both machines, our exchange
server is in the DNS settings with the correct IP address. Each morning this
week, when I come in, one Domain controller (the same each time) has added
the Exchange server to DHPC. The other domain controller continues to see
the server with the correct IP address.
What would cause this, and what can I do to aleviate this?

What does the above "added Exchange server to DHCP"
even mean?

A DHCP assigned address is ONLY possible if NIC on the
machine is set to 'obtain IP automatically'.

DCs have nothing to do with such DHCP settings, and pratically
nothing to do with DHCP at all ('authorization' is the exception.)


"See" probably means that the DNS records are correct
for the DC -- and that no OTHER machine is being assigned
the address (either manually or by DHCP server. )


What exactly are you seeing, and in what tool?
