I'm assuming you're using Windows. If so, check out this link. It says it applies to Windows XP, but it is valid for Vista, 7, & 8.

On the properties tab of Local Area Connection Properties. The OS is Windows Server 2008.

I've managed to have both static IP and DHCP on at the same time before. Sometimes it doesn't work. I enter the static IP address, subnet mask and Default gateway. Press OK and then close. If I go back into properties again and select "Obtain an IP address automatically". Press OK and then close. After clicking the details button. The static IP is assigned and DHCP Enabled is Yes.

Does the link I sent you accomplish what you're trying to do?

I'm unable to find the Alternate Configuration tab on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008

Go to Network and Sharing Center>Change Adapter Settings>Right click on the necessary adapter>Properties>TCP/IPv4>Alternate Configuration.

I've checked on both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 and they only have the General tab and not the Alternate Configuration tab

That's because you have a static IP set. You have to set your IP to dynamic, then the tab will show up. I wouldn't recommend that on the Server 2008 box if it is being used for actual server functions though.
