I have taken over for a network adminisrator who had know signs of administration. I work for a school system and money is always an issue. However, we have 14 schools that I am trying to go through and get some sort of control over the network. In the past they set up static ip's without recording them. I was asked recently to free up and reserve 20 ip's and that turned into a hour or two job. I even found that I could ping an address and it would be clear, then a device with that ip used as a static ip would be fired up and we would have a conflict.

I know there has to be a solution for this. I want a program that searches the network for ip addresses on and off the domain, gathers all addresses including switches and printers. Then I can make a report off of that.

If someone knows of software please help me.
