I have two nics in a windows 2000 advanced server. The server itself is a Dell 2650.
NIC1 172.21.35.60 DNS entry is server1
NIC2 172.21.35.61 DNS entry is Server1a
from a command prompt at Server1 console
if I do a ping for Server1 i get a response to IP address 172.21.35.61
if I do a ping for Server1a i get a response to IP address 172.21.35.61
If I disable NIC2 and do a ping I get a response to IP address 172.21.35.60.
Does this make sense to anyone? I don't understand why this is happening internally on the server.
If I do a ping externally the NICs respond as expected. This is really wierd.
