How to Delete an IP Address From a Server


Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is designed for administration through either the Windows Graphical User Interface or command line interface. When managing a large number of servers, using the command line interface can speed up tasks such as adding and removing IP addresses. Use the "Netsh" command line interface networking tool when you need to remove an IP address from Windows Server 2008 computers.

Things You'll Need

  • Administrator permissions
  • Log in to a Windows Server 2008 computer using the credentials of an account that has Administrator permissions. Click the "Start" button on the Windows taskbar and click the command line icon in the menu that appears.

  • Type "ipconfig /all" at the command prompt and press the "Enter" key. Command line output will display the IP status of the network adapters installed on the computer. Note the name and IP address of the network connection from which you are removing an IP address.

  • Type "netsh interface ipv4 delete address name="network_connection_name" address=", replacing "network_connection_name" with the name of the network connection noted in the previous step. Substitute "" with the IP address being removed from the network connection.

  • Press the "Enter" key to remove the IP address.
