Exporting DHCP Settings from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2

I have a Windows 2003 DHCP server running on a DC that will be decommissioned.  I was told I could export the DHCP settings out via NETSH and I have but before I try to import it into the new Windows 2008 R2 server I wanted to know if it will bring over ALL of the Scope and Server Options.

What are the steps I need to take?

It should but I haven't done that scenario in a while, you can quickly test with a few VMs.  Did you see this article

2012 has a lot of cool new DHCP features...when you get there.

Thanks

the handsdown easiest way to migrate dhcp databases is to,.. literally copy the dhcp .db file(s) from your server and just dump them on the new one

C:\Windows\System32\dhcp

just copy everything except text files to the new server
