SharePoint Server Search using the wrong IP


The SharePoint 2007 Server Search insert a line with the host name und the IP of the sites he has to crawl. The Problem is, that the Server has 3 Network-Adapters and MOSS uses the IP of the Backup LAN and not of the CUSTOM LAN.

The Result is, that on the Server the host name points to the wrong IP, and that's the reason why other services/applicationson the server can't find SharePoint.

How can I tell MOSS to take the right IP?

sorry for the late response, but I was on vacation (easter, you kown).

Renaming the nics didn't change anything.

Finally I had to extends the WebApp to a local server Adress, change the idexing/crawl to this adress.
