DHCP Scope missing 46 ip's

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
I'm running Windows 2000 Servers (I know - I should be migrating and I plan too).  I have 2 domain controllers.  On one that provides DHCP my scope has a total of 94 IP's ( to that it should be able to give out.  It currently lists 90 in use and 4 available when I display statics on the scope.  I get warnings in the System log telling me that I only have 4 IP's left too.  When I actually count up what displays in the "Address Leases" under the DHCP scope it totals to only 44.  So I'm "missing" 46 IP's.  This has been an on going problem that I have left alone but I'm now running low on IP's and I will need these additional ones if possible.

Something I should mention - I have a few "reservation" IP's set within the scope for PC that I require their IP stay the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
