Hi,

How can I change/rename the default NIC display name (i.e. "Local Area Connection 2" and  "Local Area Connection 2") to "Net1" and Net2 using Windows System Image Manager (WSIM).  I need it for unattended image deployment.  In earlier version of unattend it was easy to set the NIC setting.

Thanks

The only thing I can think of is netsh interface set interface name="Local Area Connection" newname="LAN" which can be put in a batch script towards the end.
