Can you import DHCP records into DNS on Server 2003

Is there any way to export DHCP list and some how import that list into DNS?

I do not want to have to manually add addresses into DNS.

You could set the leases to expire in one hour on the old DHCP server and then when they recieve the new lease from the new DHCP server DNS will add the entry.
You can export to a TXT file from DHCP but I do not know of a way to import that TXT file into DNS.

Does the DNS zone permit dynamic updates?

Has the DHCP server been told to update DNS on behalf of your clients?

Which DNS servers do you hand out to your clients (or the DHCP server if it's updating)? Whatever performs the updates must be able to reliably resolve addresses in the zone it's updating.

Chris has some good questions.

When the clients recieve their IP information, the only DNS server(s) it should deliver to the clients are your internal ones. No external or ISP DNS servers should be given to clients.

I just took the long way and added all the pc's within that branch/subnet and added them to DNS manually.
