Hi - I am running Windows 2008 SP2 (NOT R2)
I need to find out how many more free addresses are available via DHCP on the server to prepare for the installation of a load of new computers.
Is there a utility I can run, either built into Windows or third party that will give me the required information.

thanks in advance

Thanks - I have looked on the console already but cant find where any 'totals' are listed. So I think I would have to manually count them up.
This is not ideal. As mentioned, I would like a to report on this so I don't have to count them all up.
I don't know of anything out there that counts your DHCP leases for you.  

Have you looked at the counters in Perfmon?

Sorry archonas...you're right!  I was generalising a little too much! :)

thanks guys.
In the end in simply exported as a list, the DHCP scope into a CSV. This showed me the current leases and also reservations. From that I can work out how many I have spare.
thanks for your help in finding this info.
