I have a Windows 2003 server and need to poll the DHCP lease information from it with a perl script that is running on a Ubuntu server. Then I need to analyze & store the information in a mysql database. Is there a way to query the leases from a perl script? I can figure out how to process the info after I get it. Thanks.
You can perhaps use SNMP, provided SNMP is enabled/allowed for DHCP service on Windows server. Using SNMP queries, one can build a statistics of the lease information from time to time remotely from the DHCP service.
