I have been giving out ip addresses to machines on my network. I'm looking at my lease file and I have found many devices do not have a hostname identifier.
IP address: 10.153.15.101 Lease status: Active Lease start: 17/01/2012 09:01:11 Lease end: 18/01/2012 09:01:11 Mac address: 00:1e:52:70:f7:53 WINS name: FHS-CFF-LA06-06
IP address: 10.153.15.114 Lease status: Active Lease start: 17/01/2012 09:01:35 Lease end: 18/01/2012 09:01:35 Mac address: 00:1e:52:70:f7:5e WINS name: FHS-CFF-LA06-02
IP address: 10.153.15.115 Lease status: Active Lease start: 17/01/2012 08:27:05 Lease end: 18/01/2012 08:27:05 Mac address: 00:23:12:06:20:4a
IP address: 10.153.15.117 Lease status: Active Lease start: 17/01/2012 08:45:28 Lease end: 19/01/2012 08:45:28 Mac address: 00:23:12:06:20:6e
how can I ensure a client has a hostname before dhcp hands out an address . in this case, two machines have the correct WINS name, the other has nothing.
Is there a way I can say,...
If WINS name = " blank" then send this address , else send this.
if WINS name = F00 then send " ipaddress "
any insight would be helpful.
