It looks all successful. but no go.

One quick solution was deinstall the IE 11 and a reboot and my IE 9 is running again.

So think twice If you deploy this in your organization DO a test run first on several sample machines.

NetworkBindingFacet: Looking up network binding order.

(05) 2012-03-18 14:03:04 Slp: NetworkBindingFacet: Network: ‘Local Area Connection* 11’ Device: ‘\Device\{2E9E3899-BB35-4E91-98D4-BF56F4ADE4F6}’ Domain: ” Adapter Id: ‘{2E9E3899-BB35-4E91-98D4-BF56F4ADE4F6}’

(05) 2012-03-18 14:03:04 Slp: NetworkBindingFacet: Network: ‘LAN’ Device: ‘\Device\{734667C2-FCC9-4874-B3E0-EDC3BA72F6AB}’ Domain: ‘mvp.local’ Adapter Id: ‘{734667C2-FCC9-4874-B3E0-EDC3BA72F6AB}’

(05) 2012-03-18 14:03:04 Slp: NetworkBindingFacet: Network: ‘ISCSI’ Device: ‘\Device\{1F016AE2-DD00-4B0F-B80B-57173AF2F36E}’ Domain: ” Adapter Id: ‘{1F016AE2-DD00-4B0F-B80B-57173AF2F36E}’

(05) 2012-03-18 14:03:04 Slp: NetworkBindingFacet: Network: ‘Cluster’ Device: ‘\Device\{BA1F99C0-0D58-44AA-85E0-ADFB1EF2C422}’ Domain: ” Adapter Id: ‘{BA1F99C0-0D58-44AA-85E0-ADFB1EF2C422}’

I know what it is it is the hidden cluster adapter which needed to be moved in the binding order, and that had to be done in the registry.

I opened up regedit and drilled down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Linkage and opened up the Bind value:

clip_image012 clip_image014

 

\Device\{2E9E3899-BB35-4E91-98D4-BF56F4ADE4F6}

\Device\{734667C2-FCC9-4874-B3E0-EDC3BA72F6AB}

Flip the registry keys and you are ready to go.

This is hard to find eh yes but you can use powershell 

wmic nicconfig get Description,SettingID

clip_image016

More info about this is on MSDN

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189910(v=sql.110).aspx

changing-the-network-binding-order-in-windows-server-2008

and it you want to change this by powershell the get-itemproperty is the way.

Get-ItemProperty Registry::HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Linkage\bind\*

clip_image020

After the NIC binding order change the SQL setup marked all as passed.

Samples :

 

Get-Item -Path Registry::HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Linkage\bind\* | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Property

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -Filter "IPenabled = $true" | select Description, IPAddress, index, SettingID

gwmi Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration | where-object {$_.IPEnabled -eq "True"} | ft Description, SettingID -auto

Why Windows Storage Server 2008?   1 comment

Home

The amount of data supported within the organization continues to grow every year. Regulatory requirements, archival demands and data availability push storage requirements to their limits. As the datacenter grows, so does power consumption, physical space requirements and the need for improved hardware to handle the massive volume of data. Administrators need more than just raw storage capacity, but to implement the storage techniques and strategies that help them prioritize data and provide a standard of service. Storage demands will continue to grow and a storage solution is needed that can grow with the demand. Windows Storage Server 2008 can enable your organization to optimize your datacenter storage requirements.

It is finally here – the Windows Storage Server 2008 release based on Windows Server 2008 is ready for OEM embedded partners to develop dedicated NAS and block appliances. Learn about the new improvements in the OS, including OEM extensibility, Single Instance Storage (SIS), Java-based remote desktop features and the new iSCSI Software Target package
