Windows 2000 Network GUI Problem
I have a rather strange problem. When I go Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections and go look at the TCP/IP properties of any network, it always has the "Obtain IP address automatically" checked even though the IP is static for all network interfaces. When I type ipconfig /all, the same network interfaces have the static IPs I assigned listed. Yet, when I go back to the GUI screen, it still has the "Obtain IP address automatically" button checked. Any ideas as to why this might be happening? Thanks.

How did you statically assign the IP address? Are you assigning it within the network connection interface?

I assigned it using a VBScript. I used the EnableStatic() and EnableGateway() methods of the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class.

My guess is there is some other setting you need to set from your script to get the gui to behave. But I have no clue what it might be.
