already tried that

Interestingly i can see the the resevations, leases etc on the console of the windows 2003 server but not the server 2008 server

Colud the issue be that i am going from a 32 bit os to a 64 bit version of Windows

You never mentioned that...

Very likely, yes.

I can't imagine you could restore a 32 bit DB into a 64-bit DHCP service correctly and still be able to see it via the 64-bit console.

Do a search on the 64-bit machine for dhcpmgmt.msc and see if you get more than one hit.  There should be a 32-bit WOW version locally.  If it works from that console then your issue is certainly one of 32-64bit migration.

You may have to recreate it on the 64-bit box.

Propably similar to when upgrading to 2003, you nead to dump the configuration to a script with
  C:\>netsh dhcp server dump > dhcp-script.netsh
and execute the script with
  C:\>netsh exec dhcp-script.netsh

You'll not get the leases this way, but you get the configuration including reservations.
