Is there a way for me to check and see if we have exhausted our ip pool for our network.  I am not a server guy, but can find my way around if I get direction.  I just would like to know if we are out of IP addresses...or if not, how many are in the pool.   This would be a Windows 2003 server.

Thanks

on the dhcp server, you can open the dhcp console in administrative tools and drill down to dhcp -> scope -> address pool and it will show you the IP range.  if you click on address leases it will show what systems/devices have which IP address and when the lease expires.

it doesn't show how many are available, but when you select address pool, you can see the range the pool is for and get an idea from the leases section of what is in use and figure on what's left.  if your pool gets really low (above 80% used) on addresses you will see a warning in the application log saying you only have x number remaining. again, that's when the available address pool is low; it won't show it otherwise

On my 2008 Server with DHCP configured, I right click on Scope and the Display Statistics.

It will show Total Addresses available ( number ), In Use ( number and percentage),, and Available ( number and percentage),
