How to keep the static IP address to the interface created by the miniport driver (using Ndis 6.0) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a miniport driver for our Fibre Channel NIC using Ndis 6 in Windows 10.

    There is problem in setting a static ip address to the interface. After the driver is loaded, a static ip address can be set via "Network Connection". But after the computer is rebooted, the ip address does not show up in the ipconfig command. The interface goes back to autoconfiguration. 

    I know it must be my driver that missed something. But I do not know which OID or NDIS API to use to handle it properly. Please help me in providing suggestion or API/sample to read.

  • Can you post these details of the NIC device from the Device Manager:

    * Device Instance path

    * Location paths

    Do these details change after reboot?

  • Looks like the issue happened only during development in Window 7. As soon as we test it in Windows 10, the problem is gone.
