If you have 2003:

1. On the current DHCP server: netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all

2. Copy the dhcp.txt file to c:\ on the new DHCP server

3. Install the DHCP role on the new server.

4. On the new DHCP server: netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcp.txt all

I like:

netsh dhcp server dump

Open in new window


will show all commands needed to configure another dhcp server like the dumped one. This gives me the option
to tranfer only selected scopes to another server and it's a good config documentation.
