Binding Changes to 2008 R2 DC

Posted on 2009-12-17

Hi All,

We have a Noncompliant error on our DNS Role on our new 2008 R2 Domain Controllers

A disabled or invalid adapter precedes a valid adapter in the network interface binding order list.

The binding order determines when network interfaces will be used to make network connections by the computer. A disabled adapter high in the binding order can degrade performance.

Click Start, click Network, click Network and Sharing Centre, and then click Manage Network Connections to move all disabled and invalid interfaces to the bottom of the binding order list.

Trying to change the buildings however "Manage Network Connections" is not available. I assume this is because the Server is already a Domain Controller

So How can I change the bindings on 2008 R2 after it has been made into a Domain Controller?

Many Thanks

    Disable the second NIC. This is the quickest way.
