3. Then type in: DHCP


4. add the server you will be gathering the DHCP information from.


5. type in “export c:\w2k3DHCPdb all” command


In Windows 2012

2. type in: netsh then dhcp


3. at the dhcp command prompt type in the server you want to export the database into “server \\bj-2013”


4. type in import “and the location of the db file you exported from your Server 2003 machine


5. Done, make sure you look over your DHCP server and everything is moved over correctly. 🙂
