Netsh Element Not Found

Netsh interface add route prefix= interface='Local Area Connection 2' nexthop= Note: Since Windows Vista its not possible to set the dns search suffix with netsh, you have to use WMI for this. To set the DNS search suffix use. Netsh interface teredo set state disabled netsh interface ipv6 add v6v4tunnel IP6Tunnel netsh interface ipv6 add address IP6Tunnel 2001:470:35:833::2 netsh interface ipv6 add route::/0 IP6Tunnel 2001:470:35:833::1 i keep getting 'Element not found' message. Find the subkey that corresponds to the value of the NetCfgInstanceId parameter that you found earlier. Double-click on the MTU parameter and enter the value 1400 in decimal format. Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer. If there is no MTU parameter, you need to create it. In the Registry Editor, select Edit New DWORD Value. InterfaceAlias is NOT “Microsoft IP-HTTPS Platform Interface”, usually it is ‘IPHTTPSInterface”. You can find interface name by doing: netsh int ipv6 show int. Or it means IPv6 is not enabled on the server. This could be caused by GPO setting that somehow disabled IPv6 on the server, you will need to enable IPv6 on that server.

Configuring Windows IPv4 Networking with Netsh or Network Shell. Netsh is a command-line utility included in Microsoft’s Windows NT line of operating systems beginning with Windows 2000. It allows local or remote configuration of network devices such as the NICs.

Now I’m going to show you how to set IPv4-TCP/IP protocol with Netsh command-line tool in Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows 10 Operating system.
In the GUI environment, we can easily set or change IP to a NIC.

Ok, run cmd or Powershell as administrator, Netsh work in both command prompt and Power Shell. I’m using Windows Powershell.
To show or list the interface cards, just type: Netsh interface ipv4 show interface

Now you see tow interface cards. Ethernet0 with index id 3 is the physical interface we should set IP and configure it.
Type: Netsh interface ipv4 show config Ethernet0. You can set index IP instead of the interface name.

It gets IP address from APIPA (automatic private IP address).
To set new IP address type: Netsh interface ipv4 set address name=Ethernet0 static mask= gateway= and press enter and type: netsh interface ipv4 show config3. to see if it work correctly.

You can adjust the default gateway separately by typing: Netsh interface ipv4 set address name=3 gateway= and press enter. It can set default gateway but may reset the IP address to APIPA like below screenshot.

Now try to set DNS Server IP address with: Netsh interface ipv4 set dns name=3 static primary and press enter.

It shows an error but works correctly. The error is the lack of DNS Server, if there is a DNS server, we will not face with any errors.

By default ICMPv4 (echo request) is disabled and you can’t ping to the system. To enable it by command line just type: netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=ICMPV4 protocol=icmpv4 dir=in action=allow.

To see if it is enabled or not yet type Netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name=icmpv4 and press enter.

Ok. That’s all you must know to configure IPv4 IP address of Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7,8,8.1 and Windows 10. So good luck.

You can use this topic to learn how to enter netsh contexts and subcontexts, understand netsh syntax and command formatting, and how to run netsh commands on local and remote computers.

Netsh is a command-line scripting utility that allows you to display or modify the network configuration of a computer that is currently running. Netsh commands can be run by typing commands at the netsh prompt and they can be used in batch files or scripts. Remote computers and the local computer can be configured by using netsh commands.

Netsh also provides a scripting feature that allows you to run a group of commands in batch mode against a specified computer. With netsh, you can save a configuration script in a text file for archival purposes or to help you configure other computers.

Netsh contexts

Netsh interacts with other operating system components by using dynamic-link library (DLL) files.

Each netsh helper DLL provides an extensive set of features called a context, which is a group of commands specific to a networking server role or feature. These contexts extend the functionality of netsh by providing configuration and monitoring support for one or more services, utilities, or protocols. For example, Dhcpmon.dll provides netsh with the context and set of commands necessary to configure and manage DHCP servers.

Obtain a list of contexts

You can obtain a list of netsh contexts by opening either command prompt or Windows PowerShell on a computer running Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10. Type the command netsh and press ENTER. Type /?, and then press ENTER.

Following is example output for these commands on a computer running Windows Server 2016 Datacenter.


Netsh contexts can contain both commands and additional contexts, called subcontexts. For example, within the Routing context, you can change to the IP and IPv6 subcontexts.

To display a list of commands and subcontexts that you can use within a context, at the netsh prompt, type the context name, and then type either /? or help. For example, to display a list of subcontexts and commands that you can use in the Routing context, at the netsh prompt (that is, netsh>), type one of the following:

routing /?

routing help

To perform tasks in another context without changing from your current context, type the context path of the command you want to use at the netsh prompt. For example, to add an interface named 'Local Area Connection' in the IGMP context without first changing to the IGMP context, at the netsh prompt, type:

routing ip igmp add interface 'Local Area Connection' startupqueryinterval=21

Running netsh commands

To run a netsh command, you must start netsh from the command prompt by typing netsh and then pressing ENTER. Next, you can change to the context that contains the command you want to use. The contexts that are available depend on the networking components that you have installed. For example, if you type dhcp at the netsh prompt and press ENTER, netsh changes to the DHCP server context. If you do not have DHCP installed, however, the following message appears:

The following command was not found: dhcp.

Formatting Legend

You can use the following formatting legend to interpret and use correct netsh command syntax when you run the command at the netsh prompt or in a batch file or script.

  • Text in Italic is information that you must supply while you type the command. For example, if a command has a parameter named -UserName, you must type the actual user name.
  • Text in Bold is information that you must type exactly as shown while you type the command.
  • Text followed by an ellipsis (...) is a parameter that can be repeated several times in a command line.
  • Text that is between brackets [ ] is an optional item.
  • Text that is between braces { } with choices separated by a pipe provides a set of choices from which you must select only one, such as {enable|disable}.
  • Text that is formatted with the Courier font is code or program output.

Running Netsh commands from the command prompt or Windows PowerShell

To start Network Shell and enter netsh at the command prompt or in Windows PowerShell, you can use the following command.


Element Not Found Bittorrent

Netsh is a command-line scripting utility that allows you to, either locally or remotely, display or modify the network configuration of a currently running computer. Used without parameters, netsh opens the Netsh.exe command prompt (that is, netsh>).


netsh[ -aAliasFile] [ -cContext ] [-rRemoteComputer] [ -u [ DomainName ] UserName ] [ -pPassword | *] [{NetshCommand | -fScriptFile}]

Netsh Element Not FoundNetsh


Optional. Specifies that you are returned to the netsh prompt after running AliasFile.


Optional. Specifies the name of the text file that contains one or more netsh commands.


Optional. Specifies that netsh enters the specified netsh context.


Optional. Specifies the netsh context that you want to enter.


Optional. Specifies that you want the command to run on a remote computer.



When you use some netsh commands remotely on another computer with the netsh –r parameter, the Remote Registry service must be running on the remote computer. If it is not running, Windows displays a “Network Path Not Found” error message.


Optional. Specifies the remote computer that you want to configure.

Netsh Element Not Found Ipv4


Optional. Specifies the script that you want to run.


Optional. Displays help at the netsh prompt.

Netsh Ipv6 Element Not Found


If you specify -r followed by another command, netsh runs the command on the remote computer and then returns to the Cmd.exe command prompt. If you specify -r without another command, netsh opens in remote mode. The process is similar to using set machine at the Netsh command prompt. When you use -r, you set the target computer for the current instance of netsh only. After you exit and reenter netsh, the target computer is reset as the local computer. You can run netsh commands on a remote computer by specifying a computer name stored in WINS, a UNC name, an Internet name to be resolved by the DNS server, or an IP address.

Typing parameter string values for netsh commands

Throughout the Netsh command reference there are commands that contain parameters for which a string value is required.

In the case where a string value contains spaces between characters, such as string values that consist of more than one word, it is required that you enclose the string value in quotation marks. For example, for a parameter named interface with a string value of Wireless Network Connection, use quotation marks around the string value:

interface='Wireless Network Connection'
