SBS2008 no external connectivity every startup, must run Fix Network wizard
Posted on 2014-04-27
I think probably from installing an update (and I wouldn't know which one), or from trying to set up a Smart Host (which I have now removed as it was a bottleneck nightmare and corrupting my Exchange transport), every time I restart the server, there is no external connectivity until I run Fix My Network wizard.
It states I have an incorrect network address type, and it goes away setting my server a fixed IP address. I know that my IPv4 and v6 addresses are static, and they are static even after start up, and before I run the wizard. My guess is a DNS issue, but don't take my word for it.
