hyper-v / import issue

I imported a Hyper-V Server 2003 virtual machine to another Server running Hyper-V.  Everything except the NIC works.  I have tried both Legacey and Non-Legacy NIC's using VLan mode and without using VLan mode, nothing will actually give me connectivity to the network.

I've checked the firewall on the Host Server and it 'looks' fine, but I don't know of anything special I would have to do.  I've checked the firewall on the Virtual Machine and it looks fine.  I'm even getting DHCP from the router/firewall but I cannot ping the router/firewall from the Virtual Machine.

Anything would be great at this point, thanks.

Remove all network adapters then reinstall integration components. Restart the VM then try to add a legacy adapter.

So, you removed the integration components?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I did the following...
Shutdown 2003 Virtual Machine > Removed all NICs in Settings > Started 2003 Virtual Machine > Removed Integration Componants via Add/Remove Programs > Shutdown 2003 Virtual Machine  > Started 2003 Virtual Machine > Installed Integration Componants  > Shutdown 2003 Virtual Machine > Installed Legacy NIC via Settings > Started 2003 Virtual Machine
I have an IP Address cia DHCP, but cannot ping the router or dod a DNS query to google.com, live.com, experts-exchange.com.  I cannot see any file shares on my network and I cannot see the DHCP'd address at the ROuter (in teh LAN Groups that have an entry for every IP addy that is handed out).

I have tried statically configuring the IP address? Have you placed the VM back on the other Hyper-V server to see if it works there.

Sorry about the interval, had a install to do in Nashville...long trip to say the least.  Anyway, I'm back on this now.
I have placed it back on the original Hyper-V server and it runs fine.  I may just build a new one to get this thing done, but if you have any more suggestions I'd appreciate it.  I won't start on the new VM build until tomorow at the erliest.

So, when you move it back you have no problems, right? Let's try this. I had to do this once before which was easy but still you should be able to move the VMs to any Hyper-V server.

Run a repair on the OS after you move the VM over to the new server.

I'll just build a new one, would prolly be faster and I'd feel more safe anyways...prolly just a bad install to begin with ot the original issue with the ol Hyper-V server carried through to the Virtual Machines as well.
I accepted the above comment as the solution, it was pretty good :).

This may be way out in left field but perhaps there are some old nic's that device manager is not showing and causing conflict?

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
start devmgmt.msc

Just a thought

I'll check and see, but I've go e through this thing deeply and while I wasn't looking for that in particular I'm fairly certain I would have noticed that.

I think I just have a data corruption issue. The original hyper v box has some serious SCSI over sata controllor issues.
