ive installed windows 2008 and detected and installed windows updates as this will be the master dc/dns/dhcp server.
- I have also set network discovery to - on
- static ip address is set
however when I plug my network cable from the server to my test hub, it attempts to identify connection and on completion just shows as 'unidentified'
test carried out:
- ping local static address - successfully
- ipconfig /all shows static ip - successfully
- dg - not added currently
previously when I purchased this 'dell poweredge 1950' I had I think this same problem but I did not make a note of resolution. it did not come with any nic drivers and as ive also detected 155 windows updates last night I would have thought it would resolve my issue.
currently I am not plugged into the 'internet' now as I am now plugged into a temporary hub because later on I will setup my cisco switch via my asa5505 like I have done in the passed.
question 1. does anyone have any ideas ?
