Hi,

I got this script from EE> which can release and renew ip address once run.
What my issue is.
In remote locations when its required to change the ip address after reserving the ip in the DHCP.I need to release and renew it.
After a release when connected online i cannot connect to renew.So i need a script that can first release and then renew it.

@echo off

for /f "tokens=3 delims= " %%d in (
    ''netsh int ip sh add ^| find /i "DHCP"''
) do (
    set dhcp=%%d
)

if /i "%dhcp%"=="Yes" (
    echo Client is using DHCP - Renewing the DHCP Address lease...
    ipconfig /release > nul
    ipconfig /renew   > nul
) else (
    echo Client is statically assigned - leaving address untouched...
)

nbtstat -RR > nul
ipconfig /registerdns > nul

goto :eof

:END
echo This script is to be run on Windows 2000/XP/2003 Only!

Can you help checking if this script is right.

Hi Sharath,
Above script should work perfectly. Do you receive any error?

Only following lines should be replaced...

>>for /f "tokens=3 delims= " %%d in (
>>    ''netsh int ip sh add ^| find /i "DHCP"''

with:

for /f "tokens=3 delims= " %%d in ('netsh int ip sh add ^| find /i "DHCP"') do (

Hope this helps!
