2 primary errors on my W2K Server, A SPN could not be constructed because the provided host name is not in the necessary format and Unable to establish connection with the global catalog.

I have a W2K server which serves as the AD, DNS, DHCP, WINS, remote access and a file server for my network. I recently added a new 3ware raid 5 card and 3 drives to the server. In order to facilitate this I had to move the 2 network cards to a new PCI slot. I did not remove the cards from the device manager before I made the change as I figured that becuase they were the same cards it would not make a difference. Ever since I made this change I have been getting the following 2 errors on the server in the Event Viewer under directory service, NTDS General error 1126 - unable to establish connection with the global catalog and NTDS Replication 1411 - The directory service failed to construct a mutual authentication Service Principle Name (SPN) for mlserver. The call is denied. The error was: A Service Principle Name (SPN) could not be constructed because the proviced hostname is not in the necessary format. The record data is the status code
0000: 6a 21 00 00
How can I resolve this issue?
