hope this should be useful
I would like to be able to move a DHCP database from one 2000 server to another 2000 server. I have followed the procedures from MS article 130642 to move the db and make registry changes. Once I am completed with the procedure, I am unable to obtain a lease from the destination server. The procedures are very straight forward. Tried deactivate/activate moved scopes, deauthorize/authorize server and start/stop DHCP service. Any ideas?
