Have a look here:

Make a full backup including system state before you touch your system.

sorry if the question remained uncomplete. but the there is a new server hardware as well for 2008 server. so i think its not inplace.

Mmh, ok. Is there really an need for moving DHCP? As the IP adresses may vary, you can simply create a new one on the new server. You can switch the servers during the night (as you can only have one active DHCP server). All clients will regesgister with the new server. The clients will keep their IPs if possible.

To take over a few settings is less work in my mind as to move the things around.

As long as the systems are turned off, otherwise that's a pretty reasonable approach :)
