Sounds to me like you have 2 possible angles to attack this problem:
  • use SNMP to query the switches to see which IP is on which port. Its been a long time since I've written an SNMP poll for a switch, but if I remmember right I think the info you want is in the Bridge MIB.
  • The static IP's should be pretty easy to locate. For the dynamics you could query the DHCP server(s) to see what MAC a particular IP is assigned to. This may or may not be doable (and may or may ont be doable via SNMP), it depends on the capability of your DHCP server.
