Possible Bug: Rename Network Card

Jan 10, 2013 at 5:30 AM

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"
