Server NIC binding order issues?

EE,

I have a few servers that I can't RDP into unless it's by IP Address despite the same name and correct DNS records.

Every one also happens to have two Nics where the top binding Nic is on a non routable network. I'm not sure if this is required for clustering or what they have going on but could this cause an issue and could flipping them disrupt any configurations from third party or Microsoft clustering applications?

Thanks in advance

Hi

The top binding should always be the domain connected nic(client access) else services can stop working, delayed etc.
Non-routed networks can be placed at lower priority without the risk of disruptancy.
