80 PC network most of them DHCP clients
Old Windows 2000 AD Server, acting as DHCP server

New Windows 2008 R2 server, AD

I want the new Windows 2008 R2 server to become my DHCP server. Can you give me the best way to do it?

Should the new DHCP has the same IP scope and the old ?
Can I have both DHCP servers active in the same AD ?

Thank you

Set a new scope on the new server and turn it on.

Stop serving DHCP from the old server.

All the machines should get their DHCP from the new server.  When you see that all (or majority of the machines) have switched to the new server, you can remove the DHCP service from the old server.

If both the servers are next to each other, this can be an instantaneous switch.
