and it's for some reason being ridiculously difficult! I know I've been able to do this before, so there is either something about this OS (2k12r2 and intel NIC drivers) or something changed with powershell and I can't figure it out.
I've tried set-netipaddress and new-netipaddress for the interface, using either name, alias, or index, and I always get an error saying either "the object already exists" or "no matching MSFT_netipaddress objects found by CIM query...."
Anyone know whats going on here? This should not be this difficult.
