    I have to obtain scope information from a large number of remote DHCP
    servers that are also NT4 PDC servers. WMI is installed on each server but I
    can't locate a method to get the scope information. I would really
    appreciate someone's help to get this information.

    Thanks in advance,

    Thank you Doug but the DHCP servers are NT4 which is not compatible with
    this command.

    For anyone monitoring this thread, I did find a workaround. Its not pretty,
    but it seems viable. The registry contains configuration details in the
    services section for DHCPServer. Many of the key values use hex or binary
    and using DHCPCMD can provide some dynamic data like reservation & lease
    information but unfortunatly, this command is also limited obtaining
    information remotely from an NT4 DHCP.

    Thanks again, and I am still on the lookout for a better utility or method
    than what I am doing now.
