The only reason I have is one of inexperience.
The machine I inherited had the two nics and when I installed the os
I just let it configure both. Is it recommended to disable one so
that all traffic stays on one ip to and from the server?
I do thnk that I have narrowed the problem to one machine. When I
take that one offline the problem seems to abate. I also noticed
that the smbd process was a constant 25% CPU usage until I restarted it.
