I need to migrate an existing DHCP service away from and off of an older 2003 server to server 2012. I want to extract the database and import it into the new server once I have installed the role.
I am thinking this is as easy as going into the DHCP server console on the 2003 server and then clicking backup. Then copy the back up file to the new server, installing the DHCP role and hopefully there will be an import function in the 2012 server version that can read the 2003 database format. Is this the case?
Everything I've seen online seems to show people using command line. I dont want to use command line wherever possible, especially if there is a simple GUI way of doing this, which there seems to be. Is there a reason people are using command line and there seems to be no examples (that I have found) of people using the GUI for the entire process? Like is the GUI way known to be buggy or broken in some way?
