Hello,

I wish to move a DHCP Server from NT4 Server to Windows 2000 Server.

The source server is currently a BDC, the 2000 server is on the same domain and is a member server.
Can DHCP run on a member server or does it have to be a domain controller?

The DHCP Server must be identical from the source server to the destination server. How easy is it to do this?

I've browsed on the web but different websites give different instructions, so I'm hopeing for a solution from one of you guys because you all give pretty reliable answers.

Many thanks for anyones help

To save some typing I will give you my synopsis.  Copying DHCP configuration information from one DHCP server to your prospective DHCP server should be all that required.  The DHCP server can run from a member server.  If you need anymore information I would peruse this document.

Mb,

If you have lots of scopes and reservations, try the following tool. It's a whole lot easier than creating all this by hand:
