Specify the IP Address\Basic Network Settings for Windows 2008 Server Core
To set the server with a static IP address:
Find which Network Adapter to set:
At a command prompt, type the following:netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces
Bind Network Settings to a specific Network Adapter:
Look at the number shown in the Idx column of the output for your network adapter. If your computer has more than one network adapter, make a note of the number corresponding to the network adapter for which you wish to set a static IP address.
At a command prompt, type the following:
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="<ID>" source=static address=<StaticIP> mask=<SubnetMask> gateway=<DefaultGateway>
- ID is the number from step 2 above
- StaticIP is the static IP address that you are setting
- SubnetMask is the subnet mask for the IP address
- DefaultGateway is the default gateway
To specify DNS
At a command prompt, type the following: netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="<ID>" address=<DNSIP> index=1
Repeat step 4 for each DNS server that you want to set, incrementing the index= number each time.
Verify by typing ipconfig /all and checking that all the addresses are correct.
