Gathering who is using DHCP addresses

Are there any programs out there that will go thru the dhcp server logs in c:\windows\system32\dhcp and see who has renewed their dhcp lease over the period of the log files?

We have dhcp setup with no lease time, so i'm trying to figure out what has been used the past week and what hasnt...

 thanks,

You can try using the netsh command:

netsh dhcp server \\YourDHCPServer scope 192.168.1.0 show clients

this will show the current leases from the scope 192.168.1.0 on the server \\yourserver

It will display something like this:


Type : N - NONE, D - DHCP B - BOOTP, U - UNSPECIFIED, R - RESERVATION IP
==================================================================================
IP Address          - Subnet Mask   - Unique ID                 - Lease Expires               -Type

192.168.1.195    - 255.255.255.0  - 00-03-72-42-a0-ce   -12/3/2006 3:06:21 PM    -D

192.168.1.199    - 255.255.255.0  - 00-03-60-ba-fe-28    - NEVER EXPIRES            -D
192.168.1.220    - 255.255.255.0  - 00-03-ef-f3-b6-28     -12/4/2006 6:30:24 AM   -D


You're only other option is to probably write a script that will parse through the dhcp log files.
