    Hi All,

    I was asked this today, I thought it would be easy to find out but turns out it's not as easy as it sounds.....

    How could I find out when someone has changed the ip address of a NIC on one of my domains, Server 2003. Checking the logs shows nothing as far as I can tell unless I'm not looking for the right log entry. I am pretty sure 2008 logs this if the ip helper service is running.

    Hope I don't sound dim here :S

    Cheers
    Jim

    Have a look on the LAN connection and see how long it has been up for? Assuming the server hasn't been rebooted since the change of course!

    Do you use any network monitoring stuff like Cisco ACS that you could use to report when an IP for a specific MAC address has changed?

    Thanks guys, I'm glad in a way because it does indeed seem like there's no easy way to check something like that. I don't have any control over network kit so thats out. I will just have to chalk it up to one of those things. Cheers fellas, James
