dhcp server scopes migration from windows 2003 to WIndows 2012 servers
Posted on 2014-10-20
I am looking to export all dhcp server scopes from multiple Windows 2003 dhcp servers onto a new DHCP Windows 2012 server. As far as I know, Powershell is not an option here, because the Windows 2003 OS limitation, so netsh command is my only option here.
However, I am little confused here, as per my knowledge I only have 2 options:
Option 1, export all dhcp scopes and their value onto a CSV using the command netsh dhcp server xxxxxxx scope 172.x.x.0 show optionvalue > c:\SVDS006.csv
Option 2. run the command below to export the dhcp database from windows 2003 server and the import onto a dhcp 2012 server
netsh dhcp server \\Name or IP Address export c:\w2k3dhcpdb all
Which method is prefer and why?
Need to be able to export then import all DHCP scopes from all Windows 2003 dhcp servers onto a single DHCP 2012 server. All DHCP scopes and their value options [DNS/WINS/domain name,router, and so on] must be imported onto the new DHCP Windows 2012 server.
Can you please provide an example where you export 2 scopes, one from each Windows 2003 server and then import onto a new DHCP Windows 2012 server?
Please provide as much details as you can in all steps
