Hi,

here the parts - as I have no demo environment to test, I would (could) not deliver a fully tested script:

1. Configure static IP
Using the WMI
$wmi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -filter "ipenabled = 'true'"
$wmi.EnableStatic("192.168.24.200", "255.255.255.0")

Open in new window


2. Change Server name
Here you can use the built-in commandlet
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849792.aspx

Rename-Computer -NewName "NewServer42"

Open in new window


3. Join domain
Here you can use the "Add-Computer" commandlet:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849798.aspx

Add-Computer -DomainName "YourDomain" -Credential YourDomain\administrator -OUPath 'ou=YourOU,dc=YourDomain,dc=com'

Open in new window


4. Activate Windows
From this blog post:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/rgullick/archive/2013/06/13/activating-windows-with-powershell.aspx

$computer = gc env:computername
$key = "XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"
$service = get-wmiObject -query "select * from SoftwareLicensingService" -computername $computer
$service.InstallProductKey($key)
$service.RefreshLicenseStatus()

Open in new window

Hello Rainer,
Thank you so much for your quick response. i have few following questions

(1) For static ip, how can i add gateway and primary and secondary dns. also is there any way that it will pop up for a box to enter values.

(2) For change name, i would like to run as a script that i can enter a name and it will change and reboot the server

(3) For add domain, need script that will ask to enter domain name and credentials.

(4) For activation, it should ask to enter key and then activate the server.


Thanks

Hi,

(1) Static IP, gateway and DNS
$newStaticIP = Read-Host 'Please enter the static IP'
$newStaticSubnet = Read-Host 'Please enter the subnet mask'
$newGateway = Read-Host 'Please enter the gateway'
$newDNS = Read-Host 'Please enter the DNS server IP'
$wmi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -filter "ipenabled = 'true'"
$wmi.EnableStatic($newStaticIP, $newStaticSubnet)
$wmi.SetGateways($newGateway, 1)
$wmi.SetDNSServerSearchOrder($newDNS)

Open in new window


(2) Server name and reboot
$newComputerName = Read-Host 'Please enter the new computer name'
Rename-Computer -NewName $newComputerName
Write-Host "Local computer will be now rebooted"
Restart-Computer

Open in new window


(3) Domain join with credentials
$username = Read-Host 'Please enter user name (domain\user)'
$pass = Read-Host 'Please enter the password' -AsSecureString
$Cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $username,$pass
$domainToJoin = Read-Host 'Please enter the domain to join'
Add-Computer -DomainName $domainToJoin -Credential $Cred

Open in new window


(4) License
$computer = gc env:computername
$key = Read-Host 'Please enter the license key (including the hyphens)'
$service = get-wmiObject -query "select * from SoftwareLicensingService" -computername $computer
$service.InstallProductKey($key)
$service.RefreshLicenseStatus()

Open in new window

Hi,
here we go:
[int]$menuChoice = 0
while ( $menuChoice -lt 1 -or $menuChoice -gt 5 ){
	Write-host "1. Static IP"
	Write-host "2. Rename computer"
	Write-host "3. Join domain"
	Write-host "4. Activate Windows"
	Write-host "5. Quit and exit"
	[Int]$menuChoice = read-host "Please enter an option 1 to 5..." 
}
Switch( $menuChoice ){
  1{
		$newStaticIP = Read-Host 'Please enter the static IP'
		$newStaticSubnet = Read-Host 'Please enter the subnet mask'
		$newGateway = Read-Host 'Please enter the gateway'
		$newDNS = Read-Host 'Please enter the DNS server IP'
		$wmi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -filter "ipenabled = 'true'"
		$wmi.EnableStatic($newStaticIP, $newStaticSubnet)
		$wmi.SetGateways($newGateway, 1)
		$wmi.SetDNSServerSearchOrder($newDNS)
  }
  2{
		$newComputerName = Read-Host 'Please enter the new computer name'
		Rename-Computer -NewName $newComputerName
		Write-Host "Local computer will be now rebooted"
		Restart-Computer
  }
  3{
		$username = Read-Host 'Please enter user name (domain\user)'
		$pass = Read-Host 'Please enter the password' -AsSecureString
		$Cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $username,$pass
		$domainToJoin = Read-Host 'Please enter the domain to join'
		Add-Computer -DomainName $domainToJoin -Credential $Cred  
  }
  4 {
		$computer = gc env:computername
		$key = Read-Host 'Please enter the license key (including the hyphens)'
		$service = get-wmiObject -query "select * from SoftwareLicensingService" -computername $computer
		$service.InstallProductKey($key)
		$service.RefreshLicenseStatus()  
  }
default{Exit-PSSession}
}
