After changed the motherboard, i was not able to rename my network connection in one of my windows 2008 R2 server.

it says that Cannot rename this connection,. A connection with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different name.

Also i ran cmd set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and checked in device mgr  the View hidden devices in Device manager but still not able to find any network adapters.

Kindly suggest how to rename the network connections.

I tried the second method but not able to run the command sucessfully.

It gives the below error message. mine is 64 bit OS and windows 2008 server

C:\ia64\devcon listclass net
This version of C:ia64\devcon.exe is not compatible with the ver
sion of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see
whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then
 contact the software publisher.
