Comment on "Add an IP Address to Mac OS X Server"

It's not that ifconfig isn't completely integrated

I guess we're just splitting hairs, but here's what the official docs say:

However, ifconfig and networksetup do not communicate with each
other. ifconfig changes the network interface settings. [...] If you use ifconfig, your computer will be out of sync and will revert back to the contents of preferences.plist after a restart.

So, basically, it doesn't work its way into the config files.

I'm not sure what you mean by "no GUI" on OS X Server for this

There's no GUI for remotely adding it. You can't use the Server Admin tool, as far as I can tell. If you have phyiscal access to the machine, you can just use System Preferences.
