How to Backup and Restore DHCP Database

Can someone please tell me how I would go about backing up a DHCP database on a Windows 2000 Server, stopping the service on that server and then restoring it to a new Windows 2003 Server and activating it.

I would appreciate any advice from the experts.

This is a step-by-step explanation of how to do it:

How to move a DHCP database from a computer that is running Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003 to a computer that is running Windows Server 2003

- Stop Win2000 DHCP Server
- Jetpack the database
- Use DHCP Export Import tool
- Install and start Win2003 DHCP server
- netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcpdatabase.txt all
- Authorize Win2003 DHCP server.
