Note: This applies to Windows 2008 R2
The DocuShare 6.5.3 Host ID keeps changing every time you reboot the Windows 2008 R2 Server.
The Host ID changes at reboot because the Windows 2008 R2 Server has the link-layer enabled by default and this feature creates other dynamic MAC addresses on the Server. Therefore, changing the Host ID.
This issue is fixed by apply DocuShare 6.5.3 Patch 4.

Warning: The server must be licensed first. If it is not licensed then the software will pick a MAC address randomly. The host ID will NOT stay fixed until the server is licensed.
