WMIC Get IP Address

How to get IP Address via command line using WMIC?

Get IP Address of   remote computer.

Get IP Address using WMIC.

     wmic nicconfig get IPAddress,ServiceName

Sample output:
IPAddress                                       ServiceName
{"", "fe80::26d0:eff6:cc27:e1"}    VBoxNetAdp
{"", "fe80::8798:acfe:6ee9:8b7c"}    athr
{"", "fe80::77bb:eee5:3612:cc96"}  VMnetAdapter
{"", "fe80::6245:ba17:7cff:123"}    VMnetAdapter

To include subnet mask type:

   wmic nicconfig get IPAddress,IPSubnet,ServiceName

Of course, ipconfig /all is still the easiest way to get IP address.

One thing good with WMIC as long as remote computers are configured to be queried remotely with WMI, then you can easily query remote computers and get the desired data without user interruption.

To get IP Address of a remote computer type this:

wmic /node:Computer_Name  /user:Naughty\admin /password:give_away_Pass-word nicconfig get IPAddress,IPSubnet,ServiceName

That's it you can have the IP Address without walking to the remote computer or server, quite useful if the remote PC or server has multiple IP Address.

If the remote computer or server has only one network interface then just ping the host name and you will get the IP Address provided that the remote PC  or server is configured to response to ICMP request.

Cheers.. Hope it helps..

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.
