Slapping IP addresses on cards

girarde has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Brethren and Sistren,

I am seeking a way to bind numerous IP addresses to specified NICs under W2003. I run SharePoint farms with numerous web applications, and when new servers are brought online multiple NICs per server need multiple addresses per NIC. The CPAN modules I have seen all seem to deal with getting IP configuration data, not much on writing it except for DNS server settings.

Yes, I could do this through the GUI. But that is just gross. Not to mention error prone.

    All a GUI does is make some API calls, which usually write some registry entries :)

    So first find out the names of API calls or registry entries you need to manipulate , then you can tackle it through Win32::OLE/Win32::API... these win32 tutorials/examples

    You're talking about Windows - wouldn't it make more sense to use a batch script to call netsh.exe, or perhaps look at PowerShell?

      Goodness. I'd managed never even to have HEARD of netsh. Thanks!
