comment Add a static IP alias to a DHCP interface on Windows 8
@Paul: If I just add the DHCP address back with netsh, doesn't that make it a static IP, so the Windows box's stack won't keep sending DHCP lease renewals to the DHCP server? When the initial lease time is up, the DHCP server would then be free to reassign that address.

comment Add a static IP alias to a DHCP interface on Windows 8
Re: RFC 2131, where did you read that? The first and sixth design goal in section 1.6 seem to go against that. Also, IP aliasing seems orthogonal to DHCP, to me. Once again, Linux manages to work just fine in this mixed configuration. Probably other *ixes can do it too, I just haven't needed to try it before now.

I tested it, and @Fergus is right: saying netsh interface ipv4 show address after this gives the static IP only. The DHCP IP is gone.

The VM idea is hunting butterflies with a sledgehammer. Adding a VM system and licensing Windows for VM use would be complicated and probably more expensive than just adding a second NIC to the machine. I only need the 10.x.y.z address to serve a single program.
