Move DHCP from Windows 2003

To move DHCP from a Windows 2003 server to a new server start by exporting the DHCP database on the old Windows 2003 server:
  1. Open a command prompt and enter 'netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all'
  2. Copy c:\dhcp.txt to the new DHCP server
  3. Load the DHCP console, right click on the server and select Unathorize
  4. Load services and change the DHCP Server service to disabled then stop the service
On the new server:
  1. Install DHCP from Add/Remove computers and Windows Components
  2. Open a command prompt and enter 'netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcp.txt all'
  3. Load the DHCP console, right click on the server and select Authorize
  4. Wait 10-15 seconds, refresh the screen and verify you can see your records
