I'm trying to create a script that will get the IPv4 address that a machine is assigned, then statically assign them. I don't know what the IP address will be, it will come from the DHCP server. My idea was to 'get' the IPv4 address, subnet mask and gateway (DNS are statically assigned) and assign each to a variable. Then 'set' each setting from that variable making it static. I can't seem to work out how to 'get' the IPv4 address in a single object so I can assign it to a variable. If I run Get-NetIPAddress -InterfaceAlias Ethernet -AddressFamily IPv4 IPAddress : 126.96.36.199 InterfaceIndex : 12 InterfaceAlias : Ethernet AddressFamily : IPv4 Type : Unicast PrefixLength : 22 PrefixOrigin : Dhcp SuffixOrigin : Dhcp AddressState : Preferred ValidLifetime : 07:03:29 PreferredLifetime : 07:03:29 SkipAsSource : False PolicyStore : ActiveStore I just want the 'IPAddress' parameter. This is ONLY for Windows Server 2012 R2 servers that are newly deployed. Like I said, newbie, it's my first script, any help appreciated. cheers James May 4, 2015 at 2:00 am #24925 Brett OsiewiczParticipant Well, you have already created an object. You might have written $NetIPAddress = Get-NetIPAddress -InterfaceAlias Ethernet -AddressFamily IPv4 #And then to use the IpAddress, you might call the object's property $NetIPAddress.IPAddress 188.8.131.52 May 4, 2015 at 4:07 pm #24943 James PickardParticipant Thanks Brett! That was really helpful. cheers Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
