I have a windows server 2008 with 2 NIC's connected to 2 different subnets
One is attached to one subnet fine and has good connectivity  (the top 1011 NIC)
The second Nic (104) says unidentified network, and I cannot ping the gateway on the 10.4 network

This server was on the 10.11 network.  and connected fine
Added a connection to the 10.4 network.
Removed the previous route to 10.4.0.0
reset network card

Still cannot ping or access server via the 104 network
Says "unidentified network"
