Windows Server 2003, DHCP - Unutilized Addresses

I'm running out of dynamic IPs in DHCP on my Win 2003 Server.  I just noticed, however, that the my leases stop at 10.20.2.160 even though my scope goes all the way up to 10.20.2.254.  I've looked and looked for a setting that's constraining my leases to 10.20.2.160, but I can't find it.  It's worth noting that DHCP is integrated with dynamic DNS.  I haven't found anything there either.

Exclusions can contribute to this yes, also inconsistancies in the DHCP DB. On the scope in question Right Click and reconcile. (I think this was around in 2003).

I hope this helps.

Thanks Michael,

Have you ever come to the wrong conclusion after failing to look at all the information available to you?  I did just that with this server.  In fact, the leases were simply available.  

My kid is currently studying Spanish.  Yo estoy stupido.  I think that's correct.

Anyway, thanks.  Your kind comments
