win2000 server ip configuration does not show up in the gui
Posted on 2005-03-15
i have a weird issue here. i have a server[pap01] that crashed, then i restored it from tape and everything is fine. however, the ip configuration of the server does not show up on the gui interface. i goto start | settings | network and dialup configurations | right click 'local area connection 1' | click tcp/ip | click properties. it should show up as a static ip address and manually inputed dns servers and what not, but "obtain an ip address automatically" and "obtain dns server address automatically" are both checked. it basically looks like a dhcp tcpip settings. it says nothing is configured for a static setup. but all the websites work[they are bound by different ips].
if i go cmd | ipconfig /all | i see all the proper information.
it states the normal ipconfig data, all the bound ip addresses. which is correct.
basically the ip configuration of the server is correct but the gui does not reflect that. the gui has nothing in it. just a normal dhcp setup. i think the tcp/ip stack is hosed and i might have to reinstall it. or remove and then reinstall in directory services mode.
please let me know wat you think :)
