A tip on how you can configure a static IP address using MDT 2010.

In some environments you may need to configure MDT 2010 so that target computers receive a static IP address during deployment. To do this, add the following lines to your CustomSettings.ini file and customize the address information in them as required:

OSDAdapterCount=1

OSDAdapter0EnableDHCP=FALSE

OSDAdapter0IPAddressList=192.168.0.40

OSDAdapter0SubnetMask=255.255.255.0

OSDAdapter0Gateways=192.168.0.1

OSDAdapter0DNSSuffix=contoso.com
