To do this we are going to use the netsh command. By Default, Windows starts naming the network interfaces “Local Area Connection”. There are situations in which you may want to change this. Let’s say you have more than one network interface on your system. Maybe you use one for domain isolation. In other words. You can only talk to a set of servers on this interface that is secured with IPSec. This is a common scenario for domain controllers. To help you identify which interface you are working on, you can rename it.
Netsh interface set interface name=”Old Name” newname=”newname”
For example, lets take the default interface and give it a new name.
Netsh interface set interface name=”Local Area Connection” newname=”DCIsolation”
In the above example, we changed the default name of Local Area Connection to DCIsolation.
