The best practices analyzer has given me this message. I have not seen any problems but it is the only message that appears when I run the best practices analyzer on this VM. I tried following the resolution procedures but it was not detailed enough for me. I did set the advanced menu to show up after much searching on google. That was a task in its own. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated. Thank You in advance.

Title:
DNS: Valid network interfaces should precede invalid interfaces in the binding order

Severity:
Warning

Date:
9/9/2010 3:37:29 PM

Category:
Configuration

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

Impact:
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.

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

Well, this is happening because probably you have more than one network card into the server and the disabled or inactive ones are comming before into the precedence communiction order.

Go to Manage Networks
Click Advanced Menu
Choose Advanced Settings
And move the LAN Connected network to the first position
Restart the server

Remove the network adapter from the virtual machine then re-add back into the system

I have tried everything mentioned above but it is still not resolving the message in the best practices analyzer. Could the HP network config utility on the parent os be causing the problem? Do I need this utility in order to team my nics or can I do this in windows elsewhere?

Could be causing the problems but to team you really need this software. Make sure it is up to date
