Hello,

Good Morning.
I have a windows 2019 cluster and created couple of file server roles and associated a static IPs to the roles.
Created SMB and NFS shares as well. I just have 1 IP mapped per File server role.

Now if i have to update/change the IP associated with file server role, would it be possible?

Thanks in advance for your time!

    Hi,
    It is possible.
    You can change the IP address as below:
    In failover cluster, find the role you want to modify;

    Right click the Name of the server, change the DNS name, and configure the IP as you want.

    Thanks for your time.
    Best regards,
    Danny

    Thank you so much Danny. It worked!.

    I am actually looking for a powershell cmdlet to achieve the same. I did call Add-ClusterFileServerRole() to create the fileserver role in Windows 2019 coreOS.
    It would help if you can share the cmdlet as well, as from the quick search i could not find the cmdlet.

    Thanks a lot for your time and help.

    OK. I could change the name with this cmdlet. Thank you. But i am looking for an IP address change. Am checking if i can use get-clusterresource and change the IP.
    Let me know if you have any other cmdlets which can help me here.

    Thanks again for your immediate response.
