PowerTip: Document Server's IP Addresses by Using PowerShell


Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to document the IP addresses on a server.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to easily go through my server environment and
          document the IP addresses in use on each machine?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer We can do this with a wee bit o' magic from the new Get-NetIPConfiguration cmdlet
          in Windows Server 2012 R2:

Get-NetIPConfiguration | Select-object InterfaceDescription -ExpandProperty AllIPAddresses

If you'd like to save it in a file, use the Export-CSV cmdlet:

Get-NetIPConfiguration | Select-object InterfaceDescription -ExpandProperty AllIPAddresses |
Export-CSV IPConfig.csv
