  • Viewing contents of dhcp.mdb


    Hope someone can help

    I'm running a small W2K domain at home and would like to take a peek at
    the DHCP database (not because I have a problem with it, it all runs
    snoothly and has done for 18 months!).

    I've stopped the service on my DHCP server, copied the .mdb file to a
    different box and restarted the service on the server again without
    incident (yay me!)

    However, I can't open the copied DB in Access - I suspect this is
    because it uses the Jet format?

    Is there a way for me to either copy the contents of the db to a
    'bona-fide' access database, or another way for me to read the contents
    (via a third party utility or using something similar to the eseutil
    for Exchange?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hi folks

    Not often someone replies to their own post, but...

    I've managed to export the DB structure to a text file using netsh, but there doesn';t appear to be any way in W2K to export the actual DB - I tried DHCPEXIm but it threw a hissy fit and refused to do anything after I clicked the 'export' button.

    Oh well, at least I got to see the DB structure!
