I just noticed this - and now some scripts dont work as they try and egress the new NIC - which in fact is for iscsi SAN - there is no gateway and no DNS set on the new adaptor  - WHY has this happened ? how in the server itself has it registered some sort on name record for the server tieing it to the new adaptor storage van. - i put hosts record in and flushns and now its back to the correct IP - I just want to understand whats going on here?  thanks  OS 2008 r2
