Hi!

I need a powershell script that gets the ip address of the host / PC that the script runs on, and place it into a .ini file. It needs to replace an ip address thats allready in the .ini file.

How can i achieve this?

This
Get-WmiObject -Class 'Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration' -Filter 'IPEnabled = True' | %{$_.IPAddress}

Open in new window


will give you IP addresses (v4 and v6) for all your enabled adapters.

If you want further help, we'll need the structure of the ini file.

HTH,
Dan

to get current ip address use the following:
(Get-WmiObject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -Namespace "root\CIMV2" | where{$_.IPEnabled -eq “True”}).IPAddress[0]

Open in new window


how the ini file looks like?

The IP Address after 'localHostAddress =' must be changed into the IP Address of the pc that the script runs on....

[NetworkManagementCard]
mode = single
enrolWithNMC = true
acceptCerts = true
IP_1 = 10.0.0.1
protocol = http
port = 80
IP_1_Outlet = 1

[EventLog]
logsize = 1000
logfile = EventLog.txt

[Shutdown]
shutdownCommandFileDelay = 0
shutdownCommandFile =
event_ShutdownStarting_enableLogging = true
turnOffUps = false
turnOffSOG = false
shutdownCommandFileEnabled = false
shutdownCommand = C:\Program Files\group1\bin\shutdown.cmd
shutdownDelay = 10
shutdownCommandDuration = 60
shutdownCommandFileDuration = 30

[Networking]
httpPort = 3052
httpsPort = 6547
protocol = https
localHostAddress = 10.0.0.2

[SoftwareUpdate]
enableUpdateCheck = false
updateServerURL = https://autoupdatev2.apcc
updateCheckInterval = 7
devBuild = false

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

(Get-Content C:\your\path\test.ini) | 
% {$_ -replace "localHostAddress = .*$", "localHostAddress = " + ((Get-WmiObject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -Namespace "root\CIMV2" | where{$_.IPEnabled -eq “True”}).IPAddress[0])} | 
Set-Content C:\your\path\test.ini

Open in new window


Note: if you have multiple adapters, IPAddress[0] might not be the one you want.

Thanks, but it shows an error;

"The -replace operator only permits 2 elements on the right-hand side, not 3"

It's even a bit more simple (no need for a loop here):
(Get-Content C:\your\path\test.ini) `
  -replace 'localHostAddress = .*$', `
                ('localHostAddress = ' + (Get-WmiObject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -filter 'IPEnabled="True"').IPAddress[0]) | 
  Set-Content C:\your\path\test.ini

Open in new window

and be careful with regular expressions and double quotes - RegEx should be included in single quotes, to avoid conflicts between string substitution of PS and RegEx.

The error is because the -replace has precedence over +, so we need to enclose the replacement expression in parens. I've done that already above, however the same applies to Dan's code.

Thanks Qlemo, still getting that same error like in my previous question....

"The -replace operator only permits 2 elements on the right-hand side, not 3"

Tried to fix it myself, but no luck. I really am a newby :)
