  • Bad Mobo Replaced - Networking Gone Haywire

    Okay, so I got this server and got Hyper-V all set up and doin' some cool stuff.

    The server has four NICs and I had configured 2 of them to be Virtual Drives. Then, the motherboard went on the fritz (long story involving hours on the phone w/our hardware vendor, etc). The motherboard got replaced, and now my NICs are all sorts of messed up.

    Connections got re-named and now there are about 6 network adapters that I have no idea what they're from. I'm fairly frustrated with the whole thing - I'm relatively new to Server 2008/Vista as well (which is not helping things). So, I would like to just start from scratch as far as the network adapters are concerned; and, wondered if there was any way to do that.

    Here's what ipconfig /all shows on the server:

    I unwillingly omitted an interesting detail.

    Something still sees the old network adapters after everything go renamed. For instance if I try to rename Local Area Connection #8 to #2, windows spits back that an adapter with that name already exists. Furthermore, if I set a static IP for #8 to what it (as #2) was previously windows tells me that an adapter already has that address, watch out for IP conflicts, etc.

    So, someplace these adapters still exist, even though they seem to have completely disappeared after the motherboard was replaced. This is idiotic.

    -thinking the Hyper-V forum may not have been the best place for this. sorry.

      Have you tried uninstalling the NIC on the VM and then reinstalling and setting the IP etc. again?

        Gave it a shot. Through Device Manager I uninstalled all NICs and 'Scanned for Hardware Changes' only one of the 'Local Area Connections' changed. If I try to rename anything to #2, it still tells me a device already has that name.

        The names in the Device Manager stayed the same #3 through #6 for some reason.

        - wow, now my static IP configurations won't stick. If I have to reformat that's going to be unfortunate
