Find Abandoned Static and DHCP Reserved Addresses

To find abandoned addresses, select a subnet to examine. Next, examine each address record and pay close attention to the Last Response column. Look for addresses associated with devices that have not been observed on the network for an extended period of time—for example, 30+ days. Then look at the status. You will probably want to reclaim addresses that have a status of “Used” and have not observed for an extended period of time. If the DHCP Reservation attribute is set to “YES,” then you also know this address has been reserved in a DHCP scope.

Reclaim Unused Addresses

Once you have identified an abandoned address, select it and edit its configuration properties. To reclaim the address, change its status from Used to Available. If the address has been reserved in DHCP, simply uncheck DHCP Reservation. That’s all there is to reclaiming unused IP addresses.
