I was wondering if I could get some advice on what would be the best way to move a DHCP server to a new box.  I currently have a DHCP server still running on 2000 and I wanted to migrate it off to a 2003 box.  I have tried using the DHCPEXIM tool to extra the database and move it to the new server and I exported the file using the netsh command and everything worked fine.  However, after I authorized the DHCP server I was get address that was not in my scopes.


We have four scopes (;;;, but I was being assigned a 192.168.1.x address.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
