SBS 2003 RAS & NETWORKING SERVICES WONT START

Hello Experts!

Taken over at a site where it appears that there have been problems with networking on a two card SBS box.  The system had been working fine until some configurations were changed (from two card to one) and now upon restart there is a big red cross in RAS.  No network associated elements seem to be functioning (DNS, ACTIVE DIRECTORY, WEB SITES in IIS, EXCHANGE) and even ipconfig /all returns an error.
We are working at this by troubleshooting RAS itself and will look through the SBS logs but does anybody have any ideas as to why this could have happened?

Thanks

The original setup was 2 NIC ... RRAS was associated with NIC 2, internal services were associated with NIC 1.
Put the second NIC back in, and make sure to setup the IPs as they were, rerun the CEICW, and the Change IP wizard to reset the services to the appropriate NIC IP. You can change the internal IP range when running the Change IP wizard by one in the second octet: Now: 192.168.1.3 to 192.168.2.3.
That will hopefully fix it.
If not, I hope you have a good backup, or perhaps a Swing is in order.
Others may have better info.

Hi
Usually that is happen when you remove a network adapter on that all services are binding. The easiest way is to put back the first network card and to remove the existing one if you need only one in your server.
Anyway you can change the binding order for network card using this procedure:
Set the binding order: a.  Click Start, click Settings, and then click Network and Dial-up Connections.
b.  On the Advanced menu, click Advanced Settings.
c.  View the local area connections and remote access connections in the Connections box.
d.  Use the arrow buttons to put the connections in the following order:
  • Local area connection for the network adapter
  • Remote access connections
e.  Click OK.
f.  Close the Network and Dial-up Connections window.
g.  If you are prompted to do so, restart the server.

This was resolved by manually resetting the TCPIP stack.

Thanks anyway
