I have a windows 2012 server, running DHCP service, with MAC whitelisting (the "Allow" list)

whitelist functions correctly, unauthorized MAC are ignored

logging is fine I can see it in windows\system32\dhcp,

DHCP requests from MAC not on whitelist, they get ignored, but Im *not* seeing a log entry documenting these unauthorized MAC address dhcp requests.

is there some switch/setting to log these?
