Build a great reporting interface using Splunk, one of the leaders in the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) field, linking the collected Windows events to www.eventid.net. The EventId.Net for Splunk Add-on assumes that Splunk is collecting information from Windows servers and workstation via the Splunk Universal Forwarder.
Your computer has automatically configured the IP address for the Network Card with network address <MAC address>. The IP address being used is <ip address within the 169.254.0.0 range>.

What is DHCP?
What is the MAC address?
Why is the 169.254.0.0 subnet used for DHCP clients?
What is a DHCP Lease?
As per Microsoft: "The failure of the DHCP server to respond could be caused by network connectivity issues, DHCP server or DHCP relay malfunction, firewall issues, or a malfunction of your computer's network interface card or driver". See MSW2KDB for details.
See "IBM Support Document id: MIGR-58745" for additional information about this event.

When no DHCP server can be contacted it can also use the "Alternate Configuration". This is a user configured address instead of the automatic generated IP-address in the 169.254.0.0 range. The same event is generated.
I got this after configuring the DHCP server but forgetting to authorize it in Active Directory.

See ME244268 and ME255836 for information on how to troubleshoot this problem.
Message generated when a computer is configured to obtain its IP address automatically (from a DHCP server) but no DCHP server answered the request. A random IP address (within the 169.254.0.0 range) is assigned to the computer. Check the availability of a DHCP server for that segment.
