I have Minlogon, TCP/IP Networking, EWF and TCP/IP ARP. Need to enter static
IP by ARP.
Any advice?

Could you expand what you want to accomplish?
If just fix the GetMac problems, please see below.

Does the network driver got installed and working properly on your build?

Well, the goal is to minimize Flash space for System.
I have made some large Builds that run OK on that HW. But now there is only
one thing I need - to execute a program from Server. I tried to build system
that consist from MinLogon, TCP/IP Networking, EWF and TCP/IP ARP only.
Getmac was included. When I want to get MAC addresse Getmac reports ERROR
Provider type not defined.

Btw, NETSH Command reports:
WARNING: Could not obtain host information from machine XXXXX. Some commands
may not be available. Provider type not defined.
>netsh

Exit command returns command line prompt.
When I use netsh at a large build everything goes OK. There must be missing
a Component (or Components), which one?

Make sure that you have the networking driver installed properly and running
fine. (use devcon or SetupApi.log)
Or you can use "snetcfg -v -s a" to list installed NICs.

Also, make sure you've got the following components included:
Network Command Shell
Network Command Shell Interface Context
IP Router Monitor Library
Network Diagnostics
Remote Access Monitory
IP Security Services
Primitive: W32topl
