Hi,

I've got a problem with one of my (virtual) Windows 2008 servers: it keeps losing its gateway IP address after a restart!?

Anyone know why that could happen? I always have to manually enter the IP address again to get the server connected again ...

Thanks,

Jerome

Hm, that didn't work ... Maybe it's because I remove the card while the server was still running and then added a new when? Do I have to shut the server down, remove the card, add a card, restart it?

Also had a problem on a physical server. Had to reinstall the network card and update the drivers to resolve the problem.
