7837 stays on 'preparing network connections' for 9 minutes
New Unity 3.1.3 baseline installation with 7837. On boot up, the server stays on 'preparing network connections' for over nine minutes.
Have disabled the second nic via server rom bios, removed (or demoted) bindings in windows dial-up connections, and windows 'system' hardware.
The customer network is AD 2000 with DNS, Exchange 5.5 (domain 'customer.com'). My Unity voice mail only installation is on the same network, but completely seperate domain (avvid.com). I am seperate DNS, seperate AS2000, seperate Exchange 2000. (but all on the 7837).
