Capturing DHCP Assignments to IP Addresses

I am running MARS 6 software. While I am getting a lot of operational value, I still have a lot of setup questions.

Today it is if MARS tracks the DHCP assignments. We use Active Directory for our dynamic devices, and of course DHCP to get addresses assigned to individual machines.

Does MARS have the ability to track the DHCP assignments and update the host names assigned to IP addresses? I have not, yet, had the Windows admins start SNARE on the AD servers yet, will that provide the DHCP information?

I don't think there is any automatical way to control the DHCP change. A few solutions could be:

User a higher DHCP lease.

Delete the dynamically learnt hosts in MARS manually to force it to re-learn.

I would love to hear better solutions myself, we face the same issue here.
