Windows Server 2008 multiple network cards don't work
Posted on 2008-10-31
I have installed Windows Server 2008 x64 Enterprise edition and I setup 2 NICs on it. They're setup in different VLANs on a Cisco 6513 switch. Here's the config:
(no gateway setup)
I cannot ping the IP address on the 2nd NIC 172.30.7.15 from any computer on the domain.
I can ping the 1st NIC just fine. I can also ping the 2nd NIC from the switch itself but not from any other computer in the network.
I have the exact same setup on a Windows 2003 server and it works just fine. Here's my troubleshooting steps:
1. Turned off Windows firewall
2. Turned Network discovery On and Off, it didn't make any difference.
3. checked the binding order in Advanced properties and made it match the 2003 server
4. Turned off IPV6 on all the NICs.
It seems to be the server not responding to any clients, except for the switch itself.
