MAC Address

If the MAC is from a user or other device attached to a server, you can use;

NLIST /a /b

Last col is MAC.

MAC Address

There are many ways how to get infoabout workstation.

1. Look at switch "switching table" to get information to which port this station is connected. If this MAC address is registered on port with bunch of another MAC addresses, this means that it's connected to "next level" switch (or hub). Commands to perform this investigation depend on switch manufacturer and model.

2. Try to perform ARP resolution (look ARP table at switch or on another server, but this way may not work since you have conflict. In this case you may assign another IP address for server (temporarily) and then perform ARP resolution.

3. When you know IP address you may use "nbtstat -A <IP Address>" command to get computer NETBios name and who is logged in there.

4. If nothing is working, go through every workstation and turn it off. Then boot up server and turn-on workstations one-by-one until you will get error message. Sure it's long and dumb way, but it will work for sure.

Good luck.
