Export of DHCP Scope for Windows 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    Need some advice. Id need to know how i can export a scope that includes all settings, reservations etc from 1 server and then import it to another server. During import, does the scope get auto-activated or would I be able to activate accordingly ?

    Does this command netsh dhcp server v4 export c:\dhcp "192.168.1.0" export the full scope, settings reservations and everything else ?

    Pls advise. Thanks

    >>netsh dhcp server v4 export c:\dhcp "192.168.1.0"

    I test in my lab.Type like this:

    netsh dhcp server \\DHCP_server_name scope xx.xx.xx.0 dump > c:\dhcpscope.txt

    It contains all settings.

  • Hi,

    Netsh is probably not the best way in 2008 R2.  I would suggest to use powershell instead.

    Here is few examples --> https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj590659(v=wps.630).aspx

    This example export all settings and all scopes with leases

    Export-DhcpServer -ComputerName dhcpserver.mydomain.com -File C:\Temp\dhcpexport.xml -leases

    This example import scopes with leases

    Import-DhcpServer -ComputerName dhcpserver.mydomain.com -File C:\Temp\dhcpexport.xml -BackupPath C:\dhcpbackup\ -Leases

    And i think the scopes is activated after the importation if i remember.

  • Export works on 2008r2, but import won't
