I am setting up a Microsoft NLB cluster on Windows Enterprise 2003. When adding host to cluster, I encounter the following error:
"Could not read configuration of interface "{xxx}": error 0x8004100a".

Do you know the cause of this error? Does any one have suggestion to solve this? Thank you very much.

What kind of NLB mode do you use? Multicast or Unicast?

Try using unicast mode and check what happened. In unicast mode each cards are connected into "virtual interface" which is represented as single MAC address. For multicast mode it works as separate network cards with separate MACs. As I remember for multicast mode one of your NLB servers require additional network card for management.
