Find all machines which have static ip

Hi,

Can we find all machine on the network which have static ip's.

For some reason we have given static ip addresses for some servers long ago as of now we dont know the machine name.Is it possible to find which all machines in the domain (Network) we have given ststic ip address.

Regards

Unfortunately, IP address information is not recorded by Active Directory. To get this information you'll need to use a login script or some other type of management tool against every machine on your network.

The following Visual Basic script, for example, will run against the local computer and indicate whether DHCP is enabled on all of the installed NICs on the system. You could include something like this in a login script or use a tool like PSExec to run it against every machine in your domain/forest at once:

On Error Resume Next
 
strComputer = "."
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colNicConfigs = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = True")
 
For Each objNicConfig In colNicConfigs
  strDNSHostName = objNicConfig.DNSHostName
  strIndex = objNicConfig.Index
  strDescription = objNicConfig.Description
  blnDHCPEnabled = objNicConfig.DHCPEnabled
  strDHCPSettings = strDHCPSettings & VbCrLf & VbCrLf & _
   "  Network Adapter " & strIndex & VbCrLf & _
   "    " & strDescription & VbCrLf & VbCrLf & _
   "    DHCP Enabled:        " & blnDHCPEnabled
Next
 
WScript.Echo VbCrLf & "DHCP Settings" & VbCrLf & VbCrLf & _
 "Host Name: " & strDNSHostName & strDHCPSettings

Hope this helps.

one way but it depends on how big a network you are talking about would be  looking at the dhcp scope in AD and you will find out the exclusion address list for static ips
than you will be able to get static names using the dns commands

Check your DHCP scope to see what pool of addresses your giving out then download nad run the following tool:   http://www.softperfect.com/download/netscan.exe.

Scan your network and see what i.p addresses don't appear in your DHCP scope. These addresses will be the static ones :0)

This script runs fine against my local workstation.  Be sure that you are not encountering any line-wrapping or End-Of-Line issues when copying and pasting. Paste the code into Notepad to remove any extraneous HTML formatting (not Wordpad or Word), and be sure that no text lines are wrapping incorrectly: the code should appear in Notepad exactly as it shows up in the original message.

You would need to include this in a login script or run it manually using a tool like PSExec, which allows you to run commands against remote computers.  You'll also want to replace the WScript.Echo command with something that will write the results to a text file, see the following for a tutorial on using VBScript to write to a text file: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vbscript/vbscript_file_opentextfile.htm.
