DR CD and Fixed IP addresses

Resources


While booted from the Retrospect 8.0 for Windows bootable disaster recovery CD, you have full access to the WinPE command line. You can use the command line to configure the WinPE image to use a fixed IP address to access the network for local restores or client restores.

  1. Boot from the WinPE recovery disk.

  2. Shift Click on "Restore Locally". This should bring up a command prompt.  

  3. The command is:  

    # On older WinPE versions
    netsh interface ip set address local static <IP> <subnet>
    
    # On newer WinPE versions
    netsh interface ip set address Ethernet static <IP> <subnet>
  4. Now you can select the option to restore locally or restore a client computer.
