It depends on your setup and how you want to aquire the ip.
Assuming you want to do it from a shell. If your clients are on DHCP and you are updating a DNS server with the clients ips. A simple nslookup ip.add.re.ss would do the job.
Or if you want to do it whils someone is logged on. You can use smbstatus -S. This will show you user,machine name and ip addy stats.
