I am facing this problem in Microsoft TCP/IP. What is this happening over here? I am upset. Does anybody know how to solve this? Help me please.
The IP address 10.0.0.214 you have entered for this network adapter is already assigned to another adapter ‘HP NC7782 Gigabit server adapter’ on this computer. If the same address is assigned to both adapter and they both become active, only one of them will use this address. This may result in incorrect system configuration.
Facing this problem in Microsoft TCP/IP
The other network adapter is present in the registry but hidden in Device Manager.
Following are the ways to solve this error.
1. Uninstall it from Device Manager
2. Delete it using regedit
3. Using DevCon utility
Uninstall it from Device Manager
Click Start > Run.
Type cmd and press Enter.
At the command prompt, run this command:
Start the Device Manager by running this command from the same command prompt:
Start devmgmt. msc
Click View > Show Hidden Devices.
Expand the Network Adapters tree (click the plus sign next to the Network adapters entry).
Right-click the dimmed network adapter, then click Uninstall as shown in the below image:
Delete it using regedit
1. Backup HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices
2. Locate the following keys:
3. Search the IP address, in our example 10.2.0.210.
4. Delete GUID.
Using DevCon utility
Alternatively, you can also resolve this issue using the DevCon utility. This is a command-line utility that acts as an alternative to Device Manager.When you use DevCon, you can enable, disable, restart, update, remove, and query individual devices or groups of devices..
1. Download the DevCon tool by clicking the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:311272 The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager
2. Unpack the 32-bit or 64-bit DevCon tool binary to a local folder.
3. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press Enter. If you are running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, use the Search charm to search for cmd.
4. Type CD:<path_to_binaries> to move to where devcon.exe is located.
5. Run the following command to list all network adapters that are present:
devcon listclass net
6. Run the following command to retrieve all network adapters:
devcon findall =net
7. Network for those adapters that are not listed in the result of the first command, note the instance ID of those items, and then run the following command for each instance ID:
devcon -r remove<instance ID>
For example, run the following command:
devcon -r remove "@PCIVEN_10B7&DEV_9200&SUBSYS_00D81028&REV_784&19FD8D60&0&58F0"
