Hi all
Idea is to put some information into DHCP options so that station, booting in WinPE can get this info for further use.
So is there any command-line tool to query DHCP options ? I know that in W2K there was "netsh dhcp server show" stuff, but it won't work in XP SP2 and above.
Thanks, Andy

It should work in SP2+
You may need to issue this command in Netsh to add the DHCP helper
netsh add helper dhcpmon.dll
