Server 2012–Unidentified Network with Team Set As Public
Posted by Reprinted Article on 19 August 2013 07:01 PM
This is a bit of a frustrating problem:
After setting up the team things were fine.
However, after a reboot the server has disappeared on the network.
After logging in we see that the team is active but the network is unidentified and the firewall is on Public:
Restart the Network Location Awareness service:
Then hit refresh in the Firewall MMC:
And refresh in NCPA.CPL (Network Connections):
It turns out that in situations where a Windows Server 2012 native NIC team is set up the Network Location Awareness service should be set to Automatic (Delayed Start) to give the team time to start!
