    Hi everyone
    When I run" fix my network " in my SBS 2008 I get error "no primary network adapter found" .What does it mean? SBS works fine but I have every times every day system error 10016. I did clean install SBS 2008 on test server and got same resultes. Is it microsoft bug?

    Is your Local area connection set as your primary connection?

      There is only one LAN. Second network adapter unpluged.

        Do the two adapters show up in Windows? I appreciate that they work but I've seen a server where they don't appear before, while connectivity remains.

        Try disabling the disconnected adapter.

          SBS 2008/11 only supports one NIC, so the install should have automatically disabled all except the one in use. As gforce said, disable the second adapter if it is not already.

              That article fixed my event id 10016.

              Below is an article I found for no primary nic found while running the fix my network wizard. Looks like a registry fix.
