disabled network re-enabled after installing Windows 2008 SP2

A disabled Hyper-V virtual network adapter is re-enabled after you install Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2
 

To disable the virtual network adapter in a full installation of Windows Server 2008, follow these steps:

  1. Open Network and Sharing Center in Control Panel.
  2. Click Manage Network Connections.
  3. On the View menu, click Details.
  4. Double-click the appropriate virtual network adapter in the Name column.

    Note In a default installation, this is the name of the External Virtual Network that was created by Virtual Network Manager in Hyper-V Manager.

  5. Click Disable.

To disable the virtual network adapter in a server core installation of Windows Server 2008, open a command prompt, and then type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.

netsh interface show interface

netsh interface show interface "InterfaceName" disabled

Note The InterfaceName placeholder is the Interface name that is displayed by the first command.
