Steps Needed to Replace Ethernet in SBS 2011

I have a Small Business Server 2011 with two onboard gigabit ethernet adapters.  One has been in use; the other disabled.  The primary adapter seems to have gone bad.  What steps should I take to switch to the second adapter?  IP scheme is 192.168.10.x; primary has IP of 192.168.10.2.  Here's what I think I need to do:

Enable second adapter;  give it an IP of 192.168.10.3; disable primary adapter; change ip on second to 192.168.10.2; run Fix my Network wizard.

Am I on the right track? Any other steps?

As your Primary adapter is not working then you can simply disable the primary adapter & assign the IP 192.168.10.2 to your secondary adapter. It may give you the pop-up  i.e this ip is already assigned to another adapter. Just ignore that & continue.
