Thanks but i have noticed that this only applies to IPv6 and not to IPv4, is that right ?

Best Regards

If it is windows 2008 go to the Microsoft library:

After you enable it, you will find event logs for the following:

ID: A DHCP server event ID code.

Date: The logged on entry date on the DHCP server.

Time: The log in time for the entry on the DHCP server.

Description: A description of this DHCP server event.

IP Address: The IP address of the DHCP client.

Host Name: The host name of the DHCP client.

MAC Address: The media access control (MAC) address used by the network adapter hardware of the client.

    Windows DHCP has changed the log destination over the years, but default now is to create a file for each day of the week, and recycle (clear and reuse the day-of-the-week name i.e. Monday), so that it's not a maintenance issue. The file is text, and has the information as highlighted above, for IPv4.
