I went through the address pool on the DHCP server before I went around the machines, eliminated a few by that, unfortunately the was no proper naming convention for PC's before I came here, so a lot of them are defaults (ADMIN-PC) etc..

Scope is from .25 - .254, excluding .100 for server A, I suppose changing the IP address to something high and adding an exclusion in the scope would eliminate the duplicate IP problem, would be less work than changing the whole range, but things are kind of messy here to be honest, maybe I should look at this as an opportunity to wipe the slate and do it my way..
Thanks for the input today everyone, much appreciated.
