Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following issue on my windows2008r2 server with this hotfix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2554859), server has several IPs set to the one NIC, for example By default for outgoing traffic is used IP, I want to use, so to do that, I'm removing IPs from GUI and adding them

1) netsh int ipv4 add address "Local Area Connection" SkipAsSource=true

2) netsh int ipv4 add address "Local Area Connection" SkipAsSource=true

3) netsh int ipv4 add address "Local Area Connection" SkipAsSource=false

// For I set flag to false, because I want this IP to be default. Everything is working like a sharm until the server restart. It becomes completely not reponsible for remote control and I have to order support to fix IP configuration. Could you please advise, what I'm doing wrong? I suspect that something is wrong with registered DNS entries..

Best regards, Yahor

What does the DNS look like? Is it registering its own addresses in DNS, or are they configured elsewhere? What do you get when you do a manual nslookup on the name? –  Shane Madden Dec 27 '11 at 16:26
nslookup: Default server: ns.myhostingprovider.net –  user6943 Dec 28 '11 at 7:41
Ok.. What do you get when you query for it? –  Shane Madden Dec 28 '11 at 15:13
I think I do not understand the questions :( How can I query to it? –  user6943 Jan 3 '12 at 14:32
Run nslookup servername in a command line. –  Shane Madden Jan 3 '12 at 16:19
