Moving DHCP from 2003 Server to 2008 R2

I am planning on moving DHCP services from a 2003 DC to a 2008 DC. I already created the new scope on the 2008 R2 server. There are no reservations configured on the old DHCP server. Can I just stop the DHCP Server service on the 2003 server and start and activate the scope on the new DHCP server? Is it necessary to do a backup/restore of the DHCP database? I would like this to be seamless and not have to do a release/renew on the PC's.
