AppleTalk Protocol Binding

    This past weekend migrated Windows SBS 2000 on an old server to Windows SBS
    2003 on a new server. It went great.

    Last night I attempted to setup the new server so that the lone Mac can
    access the DATA share. The new server has 2 NICs built in, but only one was
    enabled. After loading File Sharing for Macintosh, I was prompted to
    restart the system - which I did.

    The AppleTalk protocol shows up on both Network Connections, but appears to
    have bound to the disabled NIC. I tried a variety of different ways to
    unbind this and only have it bind to the enabled NIC without success.

    I did not find a Microsoft KB article that gave any information that was
    successful with fixing this.

    Is this a bug? Is there another setting someplace to set? Is there a
    registry hack? Neither NIC would allow me to name an AppleTalk zone either.

    Already did that

    This is what I am thinking about doing tonight.
    Enable the Disabled NIC in the BIOS
    Restart the server
    Go to Network Connections
    Go to the Advanced, Advanced Settings
    Use the Bindings area to check the correct NIC (if it will let me)
