win2000 server ip configuration does not show up in the gui

hello,
   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 :)

thanks

When you do ipconfig /all | does it say DHCP Enabled - Yes ?
Have you tried re-setting the static IP addresses on tcp/ip properties?  If so, does it default back to obtain automatically?

Hi,

>>>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"

Yes...its because of old entries are still there. You can do one of the following things: -

1. Shutdown Computer > Unplug Network Card > Restart Server > Shutdown again > Plug Network Card > and then restart.
This process will install everything from scratch.

2. Uninstall and Install Network Card driver from Device Manager.

3. Resest TCP/IP Stack and WinSock (Both are required).

4. Force Static TCP/IP Settings and then restart your computer.

5. Simply delete the following keys: - (It is recommended by advanced users only)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network
GUID listed for your network card.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

Let me know.

Thanks

yeah. i actually got a microsoft article.

basically :
1]add another protocol like netbeui
2]restart server in safe mode with networking
     -if its a DC start it in directory services mode
3]remove tcp/ip
4]restart server in safe mode with networking
     -if its a DC start it in directory services mode
5]add tcp/ip and remove netbeui
6]restart
7]configure ip settings
8]done
