============================================================================================================================================ ****************To rename the server Name Default installations of Windows Server 2008 give the server a name like WIN-94CX1930EF21 or some other obscure pattern that doesn’t fit into most computer infrastructures. You can change the computer name using the netdom command. Netdom (which isn’t a new tool) is an easy way to change the computer name after Windows Server 2008 is installed on Core Editions. You can also use it on the full installation versions. It’s pretty straightforward to use the netdom command. For example, let’s go from the default name WIN-94CX1930EF21 to a computer name of SERVER13. This is the command you would enter: netdom renamecomputer WIN-94CX1930EF21 /Newname SERVER13 ============================================================================================================================================ ****************To Add the IP address In Windows Server 2008 Core installation, the only way to setup IP Address eithe Static or DHCP is from the command line. The following procedure helps setting the IP Address from the command Line using "netsh". This procedure works in Windows Server 2008 (No core installation as well), Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista. To setup Static IP Address: From the command prompt: 1. Type C:UsersAdministrator> netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces Idx Met MTU State Name – – — —- ——- 1 50 4294967295 connected Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 10 20 1500 connected Local Area Connection This should show the Network Connections. We are looking for the name here. On mine, I have one LAN interface and is named as "Local Area Connection" 2. To set a static IP Address type the following command C:UsersAdministrator>netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Local Area Connect ion" source=static address=192.168.0.5 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.0.1 The syntax is netsh interface ipv4 set address name="<ID>" source=static address=<StaticIP> mask=<SubnetMask> gateway=<DefaultGateway> Where: ID is the name of the LAN Connection StaticIP is the static IP address that you are setting SubnetMask is the subnet mask for the IP address DefaultGateway is the default gateway =========================================================================================================================================== ****************TO set the DNS Servers :— set the DNS Servers one at a time with the followind command. For each DNS server, increase the index number. C:UsersAdministrator>netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="Local Area Connection" address=192.168.0.1 index=1 C:UsersAdministrator>netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="Local Area Conne ction" address=192.168.0.10 index=2 The syntax is netsh interface ipv4 add dnsserver name="<ID>" address=<DNSIP>index=1 Where: ID is the name of the Network Connection DNSIP is the IP address of your DNS server This should do. To confirm, do an "ipconfig" Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-1D-09-D4-2C-8F DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.5(Preferred) Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1 DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.10 127.0.0.1 NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled ============================================================================================================================================ ****************TO ADD INTO DOMAIN.. cALLED MYDC.COM WITH THE COMPUTER NAME DHCPSRV netdom join dhcpsrv /domain:mydc /userd:administrator /passwordd:* or else you can use the below netdom join dhcpsrv /domain:mydc   ============================================================================================================================================
