Hi,
I have a DHCP server running on Windows server 2003.  I like to find out is there a way I can obtain a DHCP log to show which IP assign to a workstation in the past.  Because right now if I go to DHCP console, it shows the current one, and a workstation may not have the same IP assigned to it yesterday.  I hope my question is clear. Thanks for all the help in advance.

DCHP maintains logs on a rolling 7 day cycle. At 00:00 on Monday it creates a log called
DhcpSrvLog-Mon.Log
at 24:00 on Monday it closes that log and starts
DhcpSrvLog-Tue.Log
Etc.
