Hi,

 

The Release notes for Retrospect for Windows, version 8 (http://kb.retrospect...&fs=Search&pn=1) state that a static IP address can be configured with the Disaster Recovery CD:

 

Bug Fix 2497: The Retrospect Emergency Recovery Disc now supports both static IP and DHCP networking

 

I just created the CD. When I boot up to the CD, I see no option for configuring the IP address. It only seems to get an IP from DHCP.

 

Is there some method I should follow to use a static IP?

 

Thanks and regards,

 

Greg

I did it with the beta version..but had to 'shift click' on restore locally....that pulled up a command prompt that allowed me to put in a 'netsh' command for a static IP.

 

I'll look thru my emals and see if I can find the exact directions.

 

I'm not sure about the release version - if it has a hot button or not.

 

BTW - I tested it with a few systems and it worked.
