Using netsh command to extract dhcp client list

Applies to Windows Server 2008 and above

Please note that in future versions of Windows, Microsoft might remove the Netsh Functionality for DHCP Server. The recommended usage is with Windows Powershell. We will explore that in a later post.

In this example I have considered DHCP Server as \\mydhcpservername and scope as 192.168.0.0

Run Command Prompt

c:\>netsh
netsh>dhcp
netsh dhcp>server
netsh dhcp server>\\mydhcpservername
netsh dhcp server>show scope 192.168.0.0

Changed the Current Scope Context to 192.168.0.0 Scope

netsh dhcp server scope>show client 1

The above command will list the following in the below order

  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • MAC Address
  • Lease Expiry
  • Type of Lease
  • Name of Connected Device

This is a continuation of my previous post about ABE. The last post was how to enable ABE on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 platforms. This post will have the steps to enable ABE on Window Server 2012 R2.

To enable ABE on Windows Server 2012 R2

1. Open Server Manager.

Internet Explorer 10 crashing randomly on Windows Server 2012 when using EAC on Exchange 2013

I did notice recently that after having installed and configured Exchange 2013 on Windows 2012 Standard, sucessfully, IE 10 starts acting weird each time I try to work on EAC (Exchange Admin Centre) using this browser.

From other other blogs and posts that have suggested different work arounds, I found downloading and installing the following security patch to be the best. You may either visit the Microsoft website and download the patch or waste no time and download it directly from here. I did not have any issues thereafter. However, you can still browse the EAC page from your laptop or PC with Windows 8 installed and use the IE 10 on it.
