Message: NLB Cluster %2 %1: The network adapter to which NLB is bound does not support NDIS packet indications, which is commonly caused by outdated NIC hardware and/or drivers. In order to properly load-balance incoming load, NLB requires that adapters support NDIS packet indications. %3 %4
   
Explanation

Your computer is using a network adapter that is either older or non-server-class. Network Load Balancing (NLB) requires that network adapters support Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) packet indications. NLB no longer accepts the older NDIS Packet Receive indications from network adapters. Incoming packets that arrive via this older mechanism will be dropped by NLB.

   
User Action

Verify that the drivers for the network adapter are up-to-date and that your network adapter is listed in the Windows Catalog as a supported adapter for the Windows 2003 Server family of products. If necessary, install a different (newer) network adapter that supports NDIS packet receives. For more information, see the Windows Catalog at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/catalog/server
