    Strange behavior after Windows Update

    Locked

    by cricket_moon ·

    Updated my Windows 2000 Adv. Server last night with yesterday’s patches. But, now, when I go into my TCP/IP settings to change my ip address, it shows that the server is DHCP. I change it back to static, type everything in correctly, reboot, and take a look…the screen shows DHCP. sigh What the heck is going on? And how do I fix it?

      which were the pathes that you downloaded ?
      reinstall sp4 and the drivers for the networkcard.

      I recall this problem more or less,
      remove the protocols tcp/ip.
      (i don’t recall quite well to remove the nic too).
      and reboot and reinstall them back again.

      Try assigning it an IP address while Offline. Reboot to see if the static IP is still there. Connect the system online if the IP setting is already there.

      After some additional digging around, and trying everyone’s ideas, I found that my event viewer shows no events in the right hand pane, but at the top, where the total is displayed, it shows that I have quite a few. Also, I have a socket program that refuses to load. Is this all some how related? What I have not done yet is back track on the upgrades. I am going to try that.

      Is the RPC service running properly? With the display problems in Event Viewer, it makes me think it is not.

      You might need to re-apply SP4 to fix this, if that is the case.

      Also, are you sure there are no Blaster worm outbreaks in your network (it would explain if RPC is mangled).
