Migrating existing services and server roles is an important part of the Server 2012 upgrade process.
In the following Step-by-Step video tutorial, we demonstrate how to move your existing DHCP configuration and leases to DHCP 2012 Server. There are several ways you can perform this migration:
– using netsh utility (doesn’t export complex configurations – ex. multicast scopes)
– using Powershell Export/Import cmdlets in Server 2012 (same limitations as above, does not work with 2003 DHCP servers)
– using Server 2012 migration tools (requires extra admin efforts – installing server migration tools)
In our Screencast, we demonstrate the last approach – using Server 2012 migration tools (smigdeploy.exe).
