I searched around and couldn't find exactly what i was looking for..so i want to ask.
This is really just for informational purposes, not a problem per se.
I have several dhcp reservations and such that i don't want to recreate if i have a failure, as those ip's are entered into firewalls/web filters etc....
What I am thinking is to use robobcopy to backup the dhcp database =C:\windows\system32\dhcp\backup\new\dhcp.mdb to another remote location on a regular basis.
If I only have one dhcp server and it completely fails,...and I have a backup of the database, can that be used on a new server with dhcp installed?
My other question is, what's a good/the best way to backup dhcp?
set up a batch file to export with the netsh command on a weekley basis?
Use windows backup?
just wanting some information and opinions....
