Server with two nics

By compserv ·
I have a Server with an Intel Xeon mainboard with a 1 100Mhz Nic and a 1 One Gig Nic. When I plug the second Nic (in this case the 1 Gig) into the switch, the computer pops up with a error stating that two computers with the same name exist on the network... I have run two nics in a windows 2000 server many times without this error. This server happens to be Windows 2003.

Hi,

Go to the properties page of the tcp/ip connections of the 2nd nic, then go to advanced, then wins, and disable netbios over tcp/ip.
(you might need to reboot)

I got this error before in Win2k3--check to see that the NICS do not have the same name. Rename the NIC's as Internal and External (assuming that is what you use yours for).

Also, check to see that your server computer names are NOT the same (yes, I know.. the obvious). Also check to see that the IP address is not used on another computer (if assigned statically).

hope that helps
