production network card is not the first bound network card

Often when you do a validation health check the first nic is not the first nic and you did check it in the network options. There is a way to change this or to checkit.

You can change it in the advanced settings with the up down arrow.



Do this with WMI

Open a admin Command prompt in the search/run  type CMD and instead of hitting the Enter key, use Ctrl+Shift + Enter this opens the Admin CMD.

Now Run :

wmic nicconfig get description, SettingID > C:nicguidconfig.txt

Lookup the nicguidconfig.txt

It looks like this :

Now that we have the Guid we go to the Register and look it up :



Open the Bind



Cut and paste GUID’s so that production network card (or NIC team) is at the top of the list.

Save key and confirm binding is correct via ipconfig /all



Your Done
