Hi All,

we are currently running DHCP on a smoothwall firewall and would like to move the DHCP service to a new windows server.
I would like to do this without interruption;
what would be the procedure?
if possible "step-by-step" instructions.

I would really appreciate all the help that you can provide.

thanks,

Backup smoothwall config. Just in case.
Install DHCP on server but do not authorise.
Make a note of smoothwall IP (I'm guessing this is your default gateway)
Make a note of your subnet mast (255.255.255.0 is likely, though check)
Make a note of any reference to a start and end range on the smooth wall.
Make a note of any ip reservations and their mac addresses.

Configure using wizard and the above information.
Authorise and start dhcp
Stop smoothwall dhcp.

Clients will get their ips from the new server gradually or when they next reboot.
