hi,

We plan to change our network design and we want to run a script that will make things faster for us.

We want the script to run with the following conditions:
===============================================
1. It will keep the current Static IP Address that is configured and use it [it will not change].
2. Change the subnet mask to a new subnet mask we'll insert it.
3. change the default gateway address to a new address we'll insert it.

for OS: Windows Server 2008

we want that the script will be fully automatic (without the need to answer any questions).

thanks.

You may use the following powershell code.

You need to feed the servername,subnetmask and default gateway in a csv file in below format.

Server,subnet,gateway
server1,x.x.x.x,x.x.x.x
server2,x.x.x.x,x.x.x.x

foreach($server in import-csv input.csv){
$nic = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -ComputerName $server.server | where {$_.ipenabled = 'true'}
$IP = $nic.IPaddress
$nic.EnableStatic($IPaddress,$server.subnet)
$nic.SetGateways($server.gateway,1)
}

Open in new window



If you have same subnet and gateway values for all servers then you need to just give the first column in the csv file and use the following code

$subnet = x.x.x.x
$gateway = x.x.x.x
foreach($server in import-csv input.csv){
$nic = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -ComputerName $server.server | where {$_.ipenabled = 'true'}
$IP = $nic.IPaddress
$nic.EnableStatic($IPaddress,$subnet)
$nic.SetGateways($gateway,1)
}

Open in new window
