how do I manually remove NIC registry entries and redetect NICs
Posted on 2007-04-10
Because of some flakey behaviour introduced after a a brief and failed experiment with adaptive load balancing on a dual nic team adapter I would like to remove all of the NIC entries and let the OS properly re-detect the NICs with no previous configuration information retained. The system is a Windows 2000 member server running Exchange 2000 all patched.
My intention would be able to return the stack to the default configution. In the past on other machines perhaps I have been too agressive in removing registry entries, but I have not had much success in successfully removing the devices without totally breaking the ability of the OS to redetect the NICs.
I have searched everywhere for a procedure and not found what I need. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
