I have a group of reservations in a DHCP scope.  I want to move those reservations to a different scope.  Currently they are in 10.17.0.0 and I want to move them to 172.31.20.0.  I only want to change the 10.17 to 172.31.  Is there a way to export the information on the reservations including the mac address, edit that file and then import it into the new scope?

Have you seen this page? It gives step by step on exporting / importing reservations.

"To export DHCP reservations, from the source server:

netsh dhcp server [ip address] scope [scope address] dump>reserv.txt

Open up ‘reserv.txt’ in a text editor, do a Find->Replace for the source server IP, change to the destination server IP. Trim out everything in the file except for the reservations themselves.

On the destination server, make sure your scope is already created, and run the following command:

netsh exec C:\reserv.txt"
