bava,
Here's something. The DHCP server uses an MS "Access-like" database. But here's the catch, if you open the current version of that database with Access you will undoubtedly corrupt it. So make a copy of the original and then open the copy. Print to your hearts desire. The file is called dhcp.mdb, and its in the \systemroot\system32\dhcp folder.

Remarks
-Remember to make a copy and work on the copied version--or you'll corrupt your original by opening it in MS Access.

It is a Msjet database but access will not beable to open it, even if it has a mdb extension. The 2 data formats are different.

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.

You can get a log from DHCP, but you have to stop the service first.  I use a .BAT file that I run in the AT command scheduler each week to dump a log snapshot.  The commands look like this:

  rem Now stop DHCP services and archive the current log.....
  net stop dhcpserver
  ren dhcpsrv.log dhcpsrv.001
  net start dhcpserver
  if not errorlevel 0 echo DHCP Services are down!!!!

DHCP writes a log file of all assignments and renewals.  But, the log is opened in exclusive mode by DHCP while active.  To view or copy the log, you must stop DHCP services.

I have written a command file, like the one I posted as the answer.  I use the AT command scheduler to run the command each week, late at night, when I expect no one is using the system.  The command file:

  Stops DHCP services:  NET STOP DHCPSERVER
  Renames the logfile:  REN DHCPSRV.LOG DHCPSRV.001
  Restarts DHCP:        NET START DHCPSERVER
 
The whole process runs very fast.  You can execute it as necessary to create a log.
