Dell Poweredge 2900 Server
2x Broadcom NetIIExtreme NICs.
SBS 2003 Standard
I installed SBS in the normal manner. I installed the NIC drivers.
Set a static IP on NIC 1 and a static on the internal NIC
I ran the CEICW. When it asks which NIC to use for the ISP/LAN the NIC with the external IP shows the IP address however the other NIC shows nothing.
If I run an IPCONFIG/all it shows NIC2 as DHCPd... Hmm Weird I think. So I go back to the NIC properties and sure enough is set to DHCP. So I reset to static and run an IPconfig. NIC1 now says its DHCPd. Hmm Go to properties and sure enough it is.. I reset it and the other NIC goes back to DHCP. I can go on all night but you get the point.
I went into the broadcom util but there arent any settings regarding dhcp/static ip.
Driving me a little crazy. Any help would be great.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the NICs. (they are onboard.)
I also removed the hidden WAN mini port (IP) which was discussed in a KB regarding the RRAS problem which is throwing an error on boot. I assumed this would go away after running the CEICW but obviously that wont happen when the NICs are acting squirlly.
