Moving DHCP from one Windows 2003 to another Windows 2003 server.

I have a Windows 2003 Domain controller that I am also running my DCHP on but now I would like to just move the DHCP to another Window 2003 server and I am looking for the best way to do this.

You can use NETSH

netsh dhcp server export c:\export.txt all

you can also install dns on the new server, wait for everythin to replicate and then remove dns from the original.

The server that I'm moving DHCP to is not a domain controller, will this be a problem?
once I setup DHCP on this new server do I just turn off DHCP services on the domain controller?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No it does not matter if the server is a DC or not. One thing you will need to watch out for is multiple subnets. If your server has addresses for different subnets make sure you change the helper on those to point to the new IP of your DHCP server.

just uninstall DNS and AD will take care of the rest, as I said before, make sure you pay atention to your dns settings in clients dhcp scopes etc.

@mlchelp, the question is on DHCP not DNS.
