Maybe I explained it wrong but that all seems rather complicated as all I am after is the Linux alternative to ipconfig /all. More specifically , I want to retrieve the value of the DHCP server that gave out lease

Thanks Jeff,

Let's say it is impossible for me to have access to the switches, are there any alternatives?

well, I suspect if you have multiple dhcp servers, you would need to use some type of mac address authentication. or you'll have a ton of discards.
i would try statically assigning your leases and use some type of ACL to deny access from clients you don't want speaking to this server.
