How to Configure a Static IP Address on a Run-Time Image

You can change the default networking configuration on a run-time image by adding Netsh (or Net Shell) support to your run-time image. With Netsh, you can configure static or dynamic IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways. The default networking configuration for a run-time image is Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). For more information about Netsh, see this Microsoft Web site.

Use Netsh after a target is built and First boot agent (FBA) is complete.
