Windows 2003 Network card properties

Posted on 2005-04-26

After installing GB cards in a Win2K3 server, I cannot access the properties of any NIC as I get a informational screen telling me that certain elements of the properties are disabled due to having network property sheets open which isn't the case even after multiple reboots and removing HP teaming which was also giving this error. Bascially the OS thinks I've got the properties of one of the cards open when I haven't.

I tried removing the NICS, the rebooted then added them again but always get the same result.

Any pointers?

Please provide the NIC makes and models.

Also, check for the NIC applet in Control Panel.  Some NICs must be setup using their own applet instead of the property sheet in Network Places.
