Cannot restore DHCP reservations

I have restored a 2003 DHCP server database to a new 2008 server. The new server is showing all of the scopes and appears to be configured properly. The problem is that none of the Reservations are there. I've tried using the netsh import command and using the dhcp backup and restore. The 2008 server is not currently authorized.

I have looked at iSiek article "Configuring DHCP server from command-line". I am only trying to setup one server so this is not what I am looking for. I would prefer not to recreate the reservations manually.

How I can restore the DHCP Reservations automatically?

Did you try netsh dhcp [export/import]?

Yes I did the export and then the import using hetsh dhcp. I also opened the command window with administrator rights.

All of the scopes were imported, but the reservations do not seem to get imported.

Thank you,

I got it to work. I was skipping the part were you delete the dhcp.mdb. Once I deleted the mdb and performed the import again the reservations are there.

Thanks
