Network showing up as Network 2 when it should be the domain network

Last Modified: 2014-05-13
I have a server running Server 2008 R2 that is domain joined that the network connection says Network 2 (private) instead of the domain network. The machine fucntions fine on the network and it can see the domain servers and other servers on the network that it works with. It used to show the domain network but for a few months now it doesn’t.

Windows Firewall = off
File and Printer Sharing = on

Even a reboot does not fix the situation.

I also have one other server that it’s nic shows up and unidentified network and it too can do business on the network without issue but the nic just doesn’t display the domain network.
