Windows 2008 R2 core server

Hi All,

I need to make some changes to the network adapter on my 2008 R2 core server however ncpa.cpl doesn't work.  I get the ncpa.cpl is not recognized as a n internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Do you guys know if there is another way I can bring up the adapter settings on a core machine?

run "sconfig" from the commnd prompt which is displayed when you login to core.
"sconfig" will give you option to configure network adapter settings.

I think the option is number 8, for network settings.

Depending on what network settings you need to adjust, sconfig's menu might do the trick... if not, you'll have to use the command line tool NETSH.  google it - TONS of information on it.

If I wanted to add a second IP address, how would I do it?
