Use RDP to access the DHCP server - if enabled

Use the Install DHCP Sevice on the fileserver (which must also be a DC if its go Active Directory). DON NOT create ans new scopes and NO NOT authorize DHCP on the file server. Open the DHCP snap-in and connect to the DHCP server.

netsh dhcp server \\DHCPservername dump >DHCP.txt

Try from a machine which has Domain Admin rights

Check C:\ for all reservations..
You could also install windows server administration tools on your pc and access DHCP through your PC using the DHCP snap-in.
