So I have a single R710 server with a 4port nic running Server 2008 R2 Ent. core. Each port has a static IP assigned in winodws. When I launch the Hyper-V Manger and try to create external networks I am geting binding errors. I have left the first NIC alone for managment of server but trying to the 2nd-4th nic is not working well. I either get errors saying the remote server could not complete the operation due to a RPC call or that the nic is already bound to a different virtaul adapter even though none exist. Once the virtual network setup fails I lose connection the the remote computer with a message stating the that RPC services aren't running. Sometimes a reboot will restore it other times i have to remove the Hyper-V role and add it back. I can still use remote desktop to access the machine but remote connections with Server manager drop as well.
First of an i setting the nics correctly by giving them static IP's in windows?
Second, why am i getting binding errors?
Third, is there a way to wipe the slate clean with out a reinstall?
Any help woudl be great!
