    Ghost network adapters in Server 2012


      I have a P4208CP4MHGC server with a S2600CP4 motherboard with 4 I350 nic ports. I have also installed an I350T4BLK server adapter with 4 ports.

      It's running Server 2012 Std. edition with the Hyper-V role.


      Before I set the binding order of the nics, I was having trouble with it shuffling them when rebooted. This created new adapters Ethernet 9-16, leaving my original named adapters as ghost in Device Manager when viewing Hidden devices. I cannot uninstall these ghost adapters. I found this MS KB article that describes my problem, but it doesn't work. Error message when you try to set an IP address on a network adapter


      When I try to uninstall them, it acts like it's doing it, but after it refreshes the page, they are still there. Rebooting didn't help either.


      Any ideas on how to get rid of them?
