No DHCP? No Problem.
I’ve been working on the various methods of setting Static IP addresses during Lite Touch deployments and decided to space the articles out over the week. Today we’ll cover the easy ones.
If you boot into WinPE and find you don’t have an IP Address there are 2 quick ways to configure one. The first is to use the Welcome wizard pane. If you don’t see this pane then remove the line SkipBDDWelcome=YES from your bootstrap.ini file.
You can also use netsh to set a static IP via a command prompt.
In this scenario, WINPE uses “Ethernet” as the adapter name. The command is
netsh interface ip set address Ethernet static 10.0.0.9 255.0.0.0 127.0.0.1
In the next post, I’ll explain how to automate a Static IP Address during a bare metal boot.
