Posted by Francois Rufli on 06 October 2010 05:29 PM

  • On 2003 DC open cmd prompt
  • Netsh
  • dhcp
  • server file://servername/
  • export c:\w2k3DHCPdb all
  • copy to new DC
  • Log onto new DC and open command prompt
  • net stop dhcpserver
  • rename or delete DHCP.mdb from system32\dhcp folder
  • net start dhcpserver
  • netsh
  • dhcp
  • server file://servername/
  • import c:\w2k3DHCPdb
  • Restart DHCP and verify that all information was moved
  • Change your scope options to the correct settings if needed (ie DNS and WINS)

Don't forget to Deactivate the old server scope(s) that where transfered.
