I am having a few problems with a DHCP / PXE environment, I think I know what the problem is but I really just want to see what the server is getting back.
I love tools like Wget and Wfetch for seeing exactly what is being sent back and was just wondering if there are any similar tools for DHCP that just allow me to see what is being sent back.
FYI - This is in a Data centre, I have no physical access. I rent about 7 servers and have no physical access to the switch. The servers also rely on having a fixed IP setting, I have not had much luck trying the usual techniques.
I am currently in Windows PE, but have also tried from within 2008.
When I say usual techniques, I have tried using Wireshark and Microsoft Network Monitor however I have not had any luck due to the fact that having a static IP does not issue a DHCP request.
I can have access to the BIOS and basically want to boot another server off the network - I can get in to PXE and boot Windows PE or several other (modified) ISO's, but I am just having problems with a new ISO I want to test and I think that it is getting incorrect parameters so I just want to see the raw DHCP request.
