Im looking for a script that can configure ipv4 nic settings on multiple windows 7 computers at the same time from one computer.  It can be a batch file or a vbs script. Thanks

example
pc-01
Connection" source = static addr = 115.109.202.54 mask = 255.255.255.224
netsh int ip set address name = "Local Area Connection" gateway = 115.109.202.33 gwmetric=1
netsh int ip set dns name = "Local Area Connection" source = static addr = 202.54.29.5
netsh int ip add dns name = "Local Area Connection" addr = 202.54.12.164

pc02
Connection" source = static addr = 115.109.202.55 mask = 255.255.255.224
netsh int ip set address name = "Local Area Connection" gateway = 115.109.202.33 gwmetric=1
netsh int ip set dns name = "Local Area Connection" source = static addr = 202.54.29.5
netsh int ip add dns name = "Local Area Connection" addr = 202.54.12.164

pc3
Connection" source = static addr = 115.109.202.56 mask = 255.255.255.224
netsh int ip set address name = "Local Area Connection" gateway = 115.109.202.33 gwmetric=1
netsh int ip set dns name = "Local Area Connection" source = static addr = 202.54.29.5
netsh int ip add dns name = "Local Area Connection" addr = 202.54.12.164

Generally setting network configuration OVER THE NETWORK is not a good idea, but one thing comes to mind in this case - PsExec.

PsExec can copy a file to the remote machine and execute it, and thereby you can use those netsh commands that you posted above.

The idea is to have a "master script" containing PsExec commands for every machine that you whant to configure such as:

@echo off

PsExec \\pc-01 -u UserName -p Password -c -f -s pc-01.bat
PsExec \\pc-02 -u UserName -p Password -c -f -s pc-02.bat
PsExec \\pc-03 -u UserName -p Password -c -f -s pc-03.bat

Exit

Open in new window


And a batch script for each machine containing the netsh commands to configure the interface once the .bat file is copied on the remote computer.

You can choose to enter the passwords manually or write them down in the batch file (which is not very secure practice). Detail description of all command line switches is available on the PsExec web page.
