DHCP Migration

We are going to migrate the DHCP service from a domain controller that is a hyper-v guest to a physical domain controller.

After reviewing Microsoft documentation for DHCP server Migration for Server 2008 R2 (which both domain controllers are currently running) it seems like a simple process.

Our concern is that the DHCP server will have a different IP that the old DHCP server and we do not plan on changing the IP to the old server IP since that server will continue to be a domain member and just not be the DHCP server anymore.

Also, is there anything to be aware of when migrating DHCP from a virtual machine to a physical machine?

Any input greatly appreciated.

It is really straight forward so nothing to worry about really. Good move putting it on a physical server rather than virtual.

One thing to watch out for is that if you have any iphelpers set on your routers to forward dhcp requests across vlans, then you will need to update these with the IP address of the new server.
