Changing NIC on a 2003 Server ?
Posted on 2006-04-16
I have a SBS2003 server with an Intel Pro100+ Server adapter, but the back connector seem to be faulty, hence the cable keep slipping out, I would like to change the card, but would it cause problems with DNS/AD or VPN etc ?
I tried it on a spare server, after changing the card, it lost all the static IP settings, so I manually had to re-enter them, when I did that, it kept telling me that the IP (192.168.1.100) is assigned to another Intel Pro100+ Server adapter but hidden from view as the server cant locate the card.
The test server seems to work ok except I am getting AD error 4015, I just like to confirm this with an expert before I physically changes the faulty NIC.
I can log onto the test server, open Exchange emails, all shared folders seem to kept their status as before.
