Default gateway ip disappears on SBS2008 after restart.
Posted on 2011-03-15
Seems like a common problem but never the less I can't solve it!
Mainly the problem is, that I have this SBS2008 running virtual in a Hyper-V environment.
Everytime the server is restarted the default gateway ip address has disappered from the local area connection. I can just enter this manually and everything works fine again - until next time!
Now a lot of your guys seems to have experienced this problem and are posting a lot of possible solutions but these don't solve MY problem! :-)
I have tried to run the hotfix from Microsoft.
Manually check the registry for emty gateway addresses and checked DNS Interfaces for wrong addresses.
NOTHING has helped!
BUT! - if I go to the Device Manager - show hidden devices I see a LOT of hidden network adapters with strange names:
RAS Async Adapter
WAN miniport (IP)
+ 8 more named WAN miniport something.
Should I delete all of this and start all over again?
