Automating network settings

By lorenzamosley ·
Does anyone know of a way to automate the process of changing the network settings (IP, Subnet, gateway, DNS) in Windows 2000 Server. I have a server that is a member of two networks if one is unavailible then we switch to the other. Is there a way to automate the switch?
