1. install DHCP server role on the server
2. open dhcp
3. configure scope and gateway/dns

Add the DHCP role, authorize the server, add the scope without enabling it.
Add the reservations, exclusions of an IP range that is used for static Ips.
Inclulude an exclusion for IP ranges that are currently being allocated by the sonic wall, Add scope options.
When ready, stop the DHCP server on the Sonicwall while enabling/activating the windows DHCP Scope.

Allow for the sonicwalls dhcp lease time to lapse, at which point you can either delete the exclusion from your dhcp server or add the dhcp role to another system and set it to allocate an IP range excluded from the other.  This way you have service redundancy.
