Getting DHCP failover information and secondary DHCP server information

In this article, we will discuss about a method to get the information regarding DHCP failover configuration in our domain and the corresponding DHCP servers names (Primary and Secondary). Along with DHCP servers Names, we would also get information such as  Scope ID, Subnet mask, Start and End range. All this data collected would then be appended to a csv file.

[threading.thread]::CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = 'en-US'
$CurrentDate = Get-Date -format dddd
$CSVFile = "C:\Dhcp_report_$CurrentDate.csv"
$machines = Get-DhcpServerInDC

"DHCPServer,SecondaryDHCPServer,ScopeName,ScopeID,Subnetmask,Startrange,Endrange" |out-file -FilePath $CSVFile -append

foreach ($machine in $machines)
$DHCPName = $machine.dnsname
if ($DHCPName -notin @("","")){
$AllScopes = Get-DhcpServerv4Scope -ComputerName $DHCPName
foreach ($scope in $AllScopes)
$ScopeName = $scope.Name
$ScopeId = $scope.ScopeId
$failoverscope = Get-dhcpserverv4failover -ComputerName $DHCPName -ScopeId $ScopeId -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
if ($failoverscope) {
$SecDHCP = ($failoverscope.SecondaryServerName)
else {
$SecDHCP = "no failover"
$Subnetmask = $scope.subnetmask
$Startrange = $scope.startrange
$Endrange = $scope.endrange
$OutInfo = ($DHCPName).Replace(".company.corp","") + "," + ($SecDHCP).Replace(".company.corp","") + "," +$ScopeName + "," + $ScopeId+ "," + $Subnetmask + "," + $Startrange + "," + $Endrange
Write-Host $OutInfo
Add-Content -Value $OutInfo -Path $CSVFile
