Possible Bug: Rename Network Card


Can anyone else confirm this on Server Core 2012
  1. Set a Static IP address and Static DNS = works fine.
  2. Using Corefig try and rename the default "Ethernet" to anything = fails
The powshell window in the background flashes with errors in a loop too fast to see, then the app crashes.

I can successfully rename the NIC with the following powershell commands manually.

Import-Module NetAdapter

Rename-NetAdapter -Name "Ethernet" -NewName "MyNewName"

Determined that error is not related to action of renaming network card, but other processes that occur when OK is pressed on that screen.
