JSI Tip 3358. How do I disable network bindings on an adapter during an unattended setup of Windows 2000?

The format of the \[Netbindings\] entries depends upon the protocol, but in all cases, never use a , between the entries.

The general format of a \[Netbindings\] entry is:

    Network   serviceNetwork   protocolsNetwork   adapter

To disable bindings to MS_MSClient and MS_SERVER:

TCPIP

\[NetBindings\]
Disable = "MS_Server MS_NetBt MS_TCPIP Adapter X"
Disable = "MS_MSClient MS_NetBt MS_TCPIP Adapter X"
Where X is the adapter number from the \[NetAdapters\] section of the answer file.

NetBEUI

\[NetBindings\]
Disable = "MS_Server MS_NetBeui Adapter X"
Disable = "MS_MSClient MS_NetBeui Adapter X"

NOTE: An adapter-specific entry cannot be provided for IPX/SPX. If you provide one, it won't work.

IPX/SPX

\[NetBindings\]
Disable = "MS_Server MS_Nwnb"
Disable = "MS_Server MS_Nwipx"
Disable = "MS_Msclient MS_Nwnb"
Disable = "MS_Msclient MS_Nwipx"

NWLink NetBIOS

\[NetBindings\]
Disable = "ms_msclient ms_nwnb"
Disable = "ms_nwnb ms_nwipx"
Disable = "ms_server ms_nwnb"

Client for Microsoft Networks

\[NetBindings\]
Disable = "MS_MSClient MS_NetBt MS_TCPIP Adapter X"
Disable = "MS_MSClient MS_NetBeui Adapter X"
Disable = "MS_MSClient MS_Nwnb"
