Small Business Server 2003, teamed network controller having errors with one controller, I unteamed controllers, disabled controller causing errors. Configured remaining NIC to appropriate settings. DNS, pointing to itself, etc. Re-ran Connect to Internet. Everything appeared to be fine. Client claims all computers connected to network and Exchange, but some computers can't access Internet. Internet access fluctuates around the office. I ran SBS best practices, receive an error that DNS client isn't configured to point at itself. Verified card settings, it is referring to itself for DNS. Checked DNS configuration and all looked well. Found the following article, need help deciphering registry.
- refer to Method 3
Results from server:
Four items listed, only one item has the IP address of the server and the proper subnet, etc.
Step 4: The LANNIC referred is not the one I noted from step 2
(I assume I would enter the one I noted from step 2)
The confusing part for me, is the final part of step 2 - Make a note of the external network GUID also. (How do I decipher which one is the external network GUID, I am only using one NIC)
Step 6: verify value of the Last_1st_Nic_Guid entry is the LAN adapter GUID that you noted in step2, and then verify that the value of the Last_2nd_Nic_Guid enty is the external network adapter GUID that you noted in step 2.
There is not an entry for Last_2nd_Nic_Guid.
My question is, can I remove the additonal entries that are not populated under step 1?
Change the LANNIC entry to match the right one and ignore the 2nd card instructions?
I would be doing this remotely, I don't want to lose connection and leave client completely non functional.
