> Windows images may fail to obtain a public IP address from DHCP when they 
> load.  When this occurs, an auto-generated 169.254.x.x address is usually 
> assigned.  It's not possible to connect to such an address.  When the 
> computer is reserved, this address is retrieved and presented on the 
> connection info page.  The user tries to connect but can't.
> 2 improvements:
> -Detect invalid public addresses and try to obtain a valid address by running 
> ipconfig /renew
> -If a valid address can't be obtained, fail the reservation rather than 
> presenting the invalid address to the user
