  4. i can start at any time during the day, and let wireshark run for a few min, and see random computers on the network with the dhcp discovery packets being broadcast out ever so often. i can see the mac address in the packet, and trace it to the computer. I've even actually went to the computer and looked at the settings. nothing is set to dhcp just stumped on this. edit* forgot to mention all computers are xp pro sp3
  5. hope this is in the right section. i'm using wireshark to analyze my network performance. i'm seeing some dhcp discover packets being sent out, from multiple mac address's all computers on the network have a static ip address, with static dns settings. i've looked at the packets and see that they are being sent out by my computers. (no new or unauthorized devices) any clue why a pc with static ip settings would send out a dhcp dicovery? thanks
  6. i have a schedule task on multiple computers, the task has the same name, credentials, and executes the same batch file. i use this task, (which calls the batch file) to silently install software updates, update host files, ect ect each time i want to run this task, i browse to the computer on the network, go to the schedule task, and run it. all works well but when you have over 200+ to do, it's getting to be a little time consuming. is there a way to execute the task remotely without having to browse to the computer?

  14. unfortunately i don't have all the install disks for the computers, (just started this job) so i would need to run a utility on the "old" machine that backs up the printer drivers, then when i give them the new pc, i can use the same utility to restore the drivers.
  15. i've already tried that utility, and yes it does backup everything, which i do not want. i'm looking to backup only "certain" printer drivers
  16. I'm getting ready to roll out 200+ computers, and i was wondering how to backup the printer drivers on a xp machine. I don't want to backup all the printer drivers, i would like to be able to select the printer drivers that are installed on the computer. any advice would be nice
