I have anew Server 2008 server with multiple NICs. The Server is going to be
running HYPER-V. I have a Management NIC and 2 more NICs that are bound to
the same network segment and use Public IPs.
The first NIC gets the gateway. The 2nd and thrid NIC I do not assign a
Gateway. I set the order of the NICs so the one with the Gateway is at the
When viewing in Route Print it says ON-LINK for the 2nd and thrid NIC.
I can talk to these NICs locally from other servers on the same segment but
nothing outside the network. If I add a route it works just fine. As you
know if you attempt to assign a Gateway to a second NIC an error message is
thrown telling you that you should not be assigning multiple Gateways.
In the past I have never had routing issues on second or third NICs on the
same segment. This seems to be specific to Server 2008.
Firewall is disabled.
I am betting there is a simple solution but I have been unable to find it
hence this post
