I am hoping there is an easy way to do this.  Note, I do not have access to the switches, and there is no DHCP for the servers.  My *nix boys gave me a list of MAC's and want me to tell them if they belong to us.

You could run a tool like LanGuard to scan the whole subnet and this pulls all the information from every computer and server, Including the Mac address. You should be able to spot the mac by checking the last 3 digits.

Hope this helps.
