Abstract: CLIENT NOT CONNECTED after HOT-ADDING A 10/100 ETHERNET NIC
A LAN adapter can be hot-added to a PCI slot, but the client connected to the adapter will not be visible in Network Neighborhood until the system is rebooted.
The client can not be seen in Network Neighborhood because the client will not connect with the system until the reboot.
PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
No Permanent Fix is Available
This defect is reproduced only on NT setups where the server is not yet started. In order to start the server, an adapter must be installed within NT. The MS Loopback adapter may be installed to start the server and then the IBM Netfinity 10/100 Ethernet adapter may be Hot-added. See "DETAILS", section below, for more information on the MS Loopback adapter.
Adding of anything but a network card driver while in the network applet during a hot add is also unsupported. For example: Changing machine name, adding a protocol, or adding a service will require NT to reboot.
More information regarding whether or not the MS Loopback Adapter is installed:
