Okay for some reason in the domain I have recently been working on has lost its msdcsĀ zone and was preventing me from making any changes to the domain nor managing it. So here is my quick fix to resolve the issue

run the following on each of your domain controllers

stop-service netlogon
start-service netlogon
PS: Changing NIC IP Configuration

PS: Changing NIC IP Configuration

Okay, so it’s taken me a fair while of time to get this script to work needed for one of my latest projects so due to it taking me a while to piece this together I feel that it’s probably worthwhile putting it out on here for you guys to use if you wish. The following code will change the IP of a NIC and reconfigure the DNS settings using NETSH

$nicname = Read-Host

$NewIP = Read-Host

$NewDNS2 = Read-Host
write-host 'Setting New IPv4 Configuration'

write-host 'Removing Exsisting DNS Config'
