We have some applications running on a Microsoft Win Server 2008 R2 clustered environment, that have to bind to the first phyiscal ethernet adapter.
With MS clustering, an additional, hidden network adapter called “Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter” is created, which is ranked at the “first position” in the nework adapter list:
Looking at the device manager, enabling “show hidden devices”, all network adapters are shown:
However in the network control panel, only the physical ethernet adapters (actually VMware adapters) are shown:
Hence, only the order of these two adapters can be changed via advanced settings of the network control panel:
My question: Is there a way that hidden network adapters such as the “Cluster Virtual Adapter” are also shown in the network control panel and hence the order of these adapters can also be changed via the advanced settings option?
Thank you very much for your help!
