I have a new 2008 server which is running as a VM. I have installed service Pack 2 and some common programs such as winzip etc and added some standard shortcuts on the desktop. Initially I had set a static IP and RDP to the server to make all the changes. Once I was ready I set the server back to DHCP and ran sysprep via the console. I set the sysprep to Generalize and shutdown for the option. I then restarted the server and ran the capture image from WSUS. When the server completed the image capture I setup a static IP, this is when the problems started. For some reason the network showed a red cross and was not available. I can ping the server and connect via mapping a local drive but cannot RDP. Has anyone ever seen this problem.
