You have a windows server 2008 core server and need to give it an ipv4 address instead of dhcp
To change the ip address of a server core you use the netsh command. This command has lots of parameters and has an interactive shell.
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="LAN-1" source=static address=192.168.1.1 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.1.250
Please note that this command is very powerfull, for more information use netsh /?.
