Welcome to the blog of mechanised.com

This blog is mainly a technical repository of information on Virtualisation tools and management for our hosting service.

Also for HP's Bladesystem that we use at both our datacentres.

Other articles are also included on .Net development and MS SQL Server as well as other interesting things we come across.

Server 2008 - remove old NICs so you can rename new NICs properly

Start a command prompt as administrator

Execute the following:



When device manager opens choose 'show hidden devices' from the 'view' menu.

You can then right click and uninstall any old NICs (shown as greyed out)

This is always a problem for us when cloning VMWare machines!
