New IP's needed ASAP

We have acquired a new company and we're looking to bring them onto our network. We have a major problem our internal IP's subnets conflict with one another. We must change all of the IP's at one of the companies. I created new subnets but now I need a step by step how to and get them all switched over ASAP. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Windows 2012r2 Active directory domain.

600 devices, switches, printers, laptops, desktops, servers etc.

1) DHCP - Create new Scopes on the DHCP server, but don't enable them yet.

Here is a simple guide to replace the scope on a 2012 server

How to Easily change a DHCP's Scope Subnet
When the subnet changes, you will have to do a lot of work to remake all your DHCP's options because you have to erase the scope to remake it after.

You will need to save this information in order to remake:
Excluded IPs
DHCP's scope option(s)

There is a easy way to do it with NETSH;

netsh dhcp server \\”Server” scope “ip_of_scope” dump>c:\dhcp.txt

After; edit the file, and change the line;

Dhcp Server \\server add scope "Pool DHCP" ""

Save the file, and when ready erase the DHCP scope and issue netsh exec c:\dhcp.txt

And voila, the scope will be changed easily!

Just so you know, copy and paste requires work, you also must research, read and make sure the info is relevant to the topic, that is being discussed.

So you can show some appreciation other than being very dismissive.

Time and effort went in.
