have an unique situation. I have upgraded a 2003 server standrad to a 2008 server standard with 2 NIC's. when I want to check what is my external IP address, it gives me a different IP address than the rest of the servers/PC's and I don't know why. Please help. P.S all networking settings are the same on all my servers.

Sounds like you might have a NAT rule in the firewall for that IP to one of your static IP's. Do you have the 2 Nic's.
Are you wanting the 2 NIC's to pull the same IP for internal and external?

if so you might want to team or bridge the ports so they work as one.

I do have a NAT for the server which it will connect from an outside vendor to 216.136.78.40 will translate to 10.232.34.14. but when I type what is my IP it gives me 216.136.78.39. as of the rest of the devices resolve to 216.136.78.46 which is the correct external IP address. and yes, I have 2 NIC's *.*.34.14 and *.*34.15

Thank you for your assistance
