SYNTAX

Query (cdxml) (Default)

Set-NetIPAddress [[-IPAddress] <String[]>] [-InterfaceIndex <UInt32[]>] [-InterfaceAlias <String[]>]
 [-AddressFamily <AddressFamily[]>] [-Type <Type[]>] [-PrefixOrigin <PrefixOrigin[]>]
 [-SuffixOrigin <SuffixOrigin[]>] [-AddressState <AddressState[]>] [-PolicyStore <String>]
 [-IncludeAllCompartments] [-PrefixLength <Byte>] [-ValidLifetime <TimeSpan>] [-PreferredLifetime <TimeSpan>]
 [-SkipAsSource <Boolean>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [-WhatIf]
 [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

InputObject (cdxml)

Set-NetIPAddress -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-PrefixLength <Byte>] [-ValidLifetime <TimeSpan>]
 [-PreferredLifetime <TimeSpan>] [-SkipAsSource <Boolean>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
 [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-NetIPAddress cmdlet modifies IP address configuration properties of an existing IP address.

To create an IPv4 address or IPv6 address, use the New-NetIPAddress cmdlet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Modify an IP address

PS C:\> Set-NetIPAddress -InterfaceIndex 12 -IPAddress 192.168.0.1
PS C:\> Set-NetIPAddress -InterfaceIndex 12 -IPAddress 192.168.0.1 -PrefixLength 24

This command adds the IP address 192.168.0.1 to the interface located at index 12.

The PrefixLength parameter may also be specified as part of the Set-NetIPAddress cmdlet.

Example 2: Modify an IP address and set the valid lifetime

PS C:\> $Timesp = ( New-TimeSpan -Days 1 )
PS C:\> Set-NetIPAddress -InterfaceIndex 12 -IPAddress 192.168.0.1 -PreferredLifetime $Timesp

The first command creates a new TimeSpan object of one day, and stores it in the variable named $Timesp.

The second command then uses the TimeSpan object to set the preferred lifetime of the IP address located at interface 12 to one day.

PARAMETERS

-AddressFamily

Specifies an array of IP address families. The cmdlet modifies the IP address configuration that matches the families. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Tentative. IP address configuration information for addresses that are not used for communication, as the uniqueness of those IP addresses is being verified.
  • Duplicate. IP address configuration information for addresses for which a duplicate IP address has been detected and the current IP address will not be used.
  • Deprecated. IP address configuration information for addresses that will no longer be used to establish new connections, but will continue to be used with existing connections.
