How do I change the network adaptor order in Server Core 2008

Hi, I need to change the network card priority order on my server core 2008 box so that the internal card is first. Does anyone know how I would do this?

You will need to go into the advanced settings in Network Connections. To get the the menu press the Alt key and that should bring it up for you.

Good Luck!

Thanks, that fixed it. For future reference the part of the article of interest was:

To change the NIC binding order:

 First get the IDs for the NICs using wmic:

C:\test>wmic nicconfig get Description,SettingID

Description                                                                         SettingID            

                 

Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet                  {18C90CD9-C246-498D-B94D-10751B8BF6B7}  

Microsoft ISATAP Adapter                                           {B5731EAB-64E1-447C-B8C8-AC30B0EE5497}  

Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet #2            {FEA1D7C4-6A2A-4EEA-86EE-B472C33C70F0}  

 

Run regedit and open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Linkage

The Bind, Route and Export keys contain a list of NICs separated by a NULL (\0).

The last (rightmost) device is the first on the list.  In the reg info pasted above you can see that the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigibit ({18C90CD9-C246-498D-B94D-10751B8BF6B7}) is first.   To make Broadcom&#2 the first nic the three values should be:

 

    Bind    REG_MULTI_SZ    \Device\{18C90CD9-C246-498D-B94D-10751B8BF6B7}\0\Device\{FEA1D7C4-6A2A-4EEA-86EE-B472C33C70F0}

    Route    REG_MULTI_SZ    "{18C90CD9-C246-498D-B94D-10751B8BF6B7}"\0"{FEA1D7C4-6A2A-4EEA-86EE-B472C33C70F0}"

    Export    REG_MULTI_SZ    \Device\Tcpip_{18C90CD9-C246-498D-B94D-10751B8BF6B7}\0\Device\Tcpip_{FEA1D7C4-6A2A-4EEA-86EE-B472C33C70F0}

 

A reboot is required for the changes to take affect.
