First time poster and Powershell newbie. Not a coder/scripter background so go easy.
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
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.
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
Thanks Brett! That was really helpful.
