Windows Server 2012 Unidentified Network

Hi all,

There is a similar topic already solver but since the solution doesn't work for me, I create a new thread. I have a similar set up: WinSrv2012 (VM), two NIC cards (one to with access to LAN one with access to internet). But the LAN network still unidentified though as advised, I put the DNS suffix to the LAN connection and IPv6 is disabled. My configuration is:

Internet
Address: 10.4.101.23/24
Def.GW: 10.4.101.1

LAN
Address: 10.4.100.23/24
No default gateway but a permanent route for 10.0.0.0/8 to 10.4.100.1 which is the gateway of this network
DNS Suffix added to advanced properties

Not sure if it's the best practice. But like this the network doesn't get identified.

If I put a gateway to the LAN connection, (despite the error message for dual gateway) my two network are identified to the same network...

Thanks ahead for the help.
Kind regards

Well, for starters, your static route make the LAN NIC useless, as all traffic, even local, would go through the gateway thus go through the "internet" NIC. That includes the various network discovery protocols. You have a broken topology.

Hello Cliff,

I'm not sure to understand your comment, the static route 10.0.0.0/8 10.4.100.1 routes all my lan traffic to the LAN (and it works - verified with traceroute). But anyway, what would you recommend for this kind of setup ?

Cheers

That static route shouldn't exist and in a properly designed network is totally unnecessary. Just declaring the IP address of your LAN NIC as 10.4.100.x/24 will auto-generate routes where all LAN traffic goes over that NIC. Your static route breaks that.

Ok I got you point. I will try to find a workaround like changing policies or stuff like that (because at the end it's the problem, I got public profile. Thanks.
