You have been tasked by the Network Team to assign a server a new static IP address. You are receiving an error when attempting to apply the IP 172.256.1.15 with a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0. What is the issue causing the error?

  • The IP address is invalid
  • There is not enough information provided to determine the problem
  • 172 is a class bravo IP but the subnet is class alpha
  • The DHCP server isn't assigning an IP address, so it has generated an APIPA address
