Is there any way to check what the actual updates that were applied, were?
I've noticed that Exchange always suffers problems whenever there's a update rollup released for Exchange... It sounds unlikely but given that Exchange seems to be the common link perhaps it's worth removing the latest rollup and seeing if that helps...
I'm obviously going to keep on trying tho :P
But, as slipbye said, I have the same problem in Safe Mode AND it's only on 2 of the servers, while all the of them have the same config & setup and have been recieving the same error in the logs.
KB960225 or KB958690
General Discussion Vista Updates KB958690 and KB960225 cause network problem - Windows Update
Vista Updates KB958690 and KB960225 cause network problems
However, uninstallling them and performing the steps in the above sites didn't help.
I check for the an update rollup (Those have caused problem for me in the past as well!) but there hasn't been one for a while and one of the 2 servers with the problem, is a DC server, not an exchange server.
Just a quick note to say that I do appreciate everyones help and suggestions, please keep them coming!
Um, tried detaching it from the domain or changing it over onto DHCP / back again?
(Just thinking of things outside of the box now!)
Weird how you can get outbound etc no problem, I suppose adding a second network card to the VM might be worth trying?
Sorry, should have read Page2! - See you've tried removing/new.
Any updates gone onto the host box?
Now would be a really good time for you to say "oh it's alright, the images are held on an iscsi san we can just restore them onto a new host".
Not used HyperV before but can it do seamless transitions onto another physical host? If so, that might be worth a go to prove/disprove the image itself as the issue.
Just tried installing the Server 2008 Service Pack 2 RC, still nothing
I added a 2nd network card to the VM, assigned it an IP and left my laptop pinging the IP of the new network card.
No connection, just like the 1st network card and the network card in the other broken server.
I'm sitting there talking to somebody when suddenly the 2nd network card starts responding the ping, nothing had happened, nothing had changed, just out of the blue, starts responding....
And then 1 minute later, it stops responding again...
and about 5 minutes later, it responds again for another minutes and then stops...
This keeps happening, the whole time the original network card and IP hasn't responded once.
Can you try fitting another physical nic to the host machine and then allocate this physical nic to the VM?
Running out of idea's for you atm
Also can you ping the host from the VM and vice versa?
