Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to check on DHCP status.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to check on my DHCP status?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-Service cmdlet and search for services that have DHCP in the name. You can do this remotely if the firewall has exceptions and if you have rights.

PS C:\> gsv -Name *dhcp* -ComputerName wds1
