comment How do you prevent a DHCP release during shutdown?
Also running Ubuntu 14.04 server ( on a corporate network ) I seem to end up with a new IP every time I reboot. Watching the console output during shutdown I see DHCP release as one of the items and also started wondering if skipping whatever causes the "release" command would allow the machine to reboot and be re-assigned the same IP address. With the same machine on home network the DHCP will persist. Is there a "trick" on some networks to keep the same DHCP address until it expires instead of until a reboot?

@Bratchley - just attempted ip route change default via 172.30.0.122 and have lost the connection / server is no longer responding. Am I missing something?

@Miline - I could also add a second interface. That article has some good details about that method, too. I just thought there should be a simpler solution.
