Configuring a DHCP server static IP address

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

For certain types of servers, you must assign a static IP address and subnet mask during or after Setup. These servers include DHCP servers, DNS servers, WINS servers, and any server providing access to users on the Internet. It is also recommended that you assign a static IP address and subnet mask for each domain controller. If a computer has more than one network adapter, you must assign a separate IP address for each adapter.

To configure IPv4 for static addressing
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet, click Network and Sharing Center and then click Change Adapter Settings.

  2. Right-click the connection to which you want to add a static IP address and then click Properties.

  3. Acknowledge the UAC dialog and then double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP/IPv4).

  4. Click Use the following IP address, and do one of the following:

    • For a local area connection, in IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway, type the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway addresses.

    • For all other connections, in IP address, type the IP address.

  5. Click Use the following DNS server addresses.

  6. In Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server, type the primary and secondary DNS server addresses.

To configure advanced static IPv4 address settings for a local area connection, click Advanced.

To configure IPv6 for static addressing
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet, click Network and Sharing Center and then click Change Adapter Settings.

  2. Right-click the connection to which you want to add a static IP address and then click Properties.

  3. Acknowledge the UAC dialog and then double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP/IPv6).

  4. Click Use the following IPv6 address, and then do one of the following:

    • For a local area connection, in IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway, type the IP address, subnet prefix length, and default gateway address.

    • For all other connections, in IPv6 address, type the IP address.

  5. Click Use the following DNS server addresses.

  6. In Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server, type the primary and secondary DNS server addresses.

To configure advanced static IPv6 address settings for a local area connection, click Advanced.
