We have 5 DHCP server running in windows 2003 32 bit platform
Now, I'm start migrating by exporting and importing the scope to the new server
when I noticed the (reservation) of IP is not including in the edport data
Becuase when i import to windows 2008 I don't see the IP reservation
My strategies is
a. Export the per scope of the DHCP (e.g 192.168.100.x) inlcuding the IP reservation
b. Import the per scope to the new DHCP windows 2008 server 64 bit
Please advise if I missed some details why is not showing the IP resevation in the new server
can you provide me a step if possible if I missed some info .
Thanks in advance

May I know how did we export/import a dedicate DHCP scope ? which commands did we perform ?
Base on my testing, we can migrate the reservation entries of that scope with no problem by command “netsh dhcp server export/import” .
Could we redo that with following the methods that described in the articles Sachin posted ?

In addition Tiger Li suggestion, you can check this wiki article.
To migrate a DHCP reservation list without having to migrate the entire scope.
Export the DHCP reservations, from the Old server which is to be migrated using netsh:
netsh dhcp server [ip address] scope [scope address] dump>c:\temp\reservations.txt
netsh dhcp server 192.168.100.10 scope 192.168.100.0 dump>c:\DHCPDump\DHCPReserv.txt
Edit the exported file in notepad 'DHCPReserv.txt', Simply do a Find and Replace for the Windows Servers 2003 DHCP server IP you ran the export on and change to the Windows Server 2008 DHCP server IP you are importing to and remove out everything else in the text file except for the reservations config section.
On the Windows Server 2008 DHCP server, make sure you create the new scope first, and ten just simply run the following command:
netsh exec c:\DHCPDump\DHCPReserv.txt

I'm getting the same issues, not successful when uploading the dhcp and per scope the "RESERVATION IP" is not inlcuded .. I did the below option
anybody can enlighten me what wrong ?
From windows 2003 32 bit to windows 2008 64 bit R2
Option 1: (entire database)
netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcpdatabase.dat all
netsh dhcp server export c:\dhcpdatabase.dat all
Option 2: (specific scope)
netsh dhcp server export c:\55.dat 172.24.55.0
netsh dhcp server import c:\55.dat 172.24.55.0

Thanks for update.
Commands to add these entries could be found form the dump file that generated by the command in MYousufAli’s reply.
Meanwhile, we have a utility will help to do that :
