Does SBS 2008 log the MAC address of a LAN client anywhere? I know the IP (statically assigned for this particular system) but need the MAC address in order to wake the PC up remotely.

run command
arp -a
if the machine address is in cache then you can see the mac address against the IP Address..

I should have mentioned that I previously tried that and it doesn't appear in the ARP cache so definitely need the MAC address from somewhere else, assuming it might be logged somewhere in the bowels of SBS.

Found it, logged in the ARP cache of the web server.
