Change Protocol Bindings in adapters and bindings
Posted on 2006-04-19
At our hospital, we have approx 1000 PCs mostly running windows xp. We run IPX and TCP. Today corporate wants us to go into network connections < advanced < advanced settings < and change the protocol order. For instance, under File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks, we have Novel IPX first and Internet Protocol TCP/IP second. We need to change the order to specify Internet protocol first. We do the same thing for Client for Microsoft networks.
Now, the process is pretty easy, but it will be really tedious to walk around and do it on 1000 PCs.
The reason we are doing this is an upgrade to a new software program will not work correctly if the pcs are set to ipx first in the binding.
My question is, does anyone have a better solution? Maybe someone knows how to do it in the registry and we can just run a script? Any ideas will definitely be helpful. Thanks in advance, guys!
