Error Migrating DHCP server


  • We are currently trying to migrate our DHCP service from a Windows 2008 domain controller to a Windows 2008 R2 domain controller.

    We export the settings from the 2008 box using the server migration tools as per the instructions.

    However, when we import the setting into the target server, we get the following error:


    Import-SmigServerSetting : Applying the specified migration data failed.

    The migration operation failed with migration status code 2.

    At line:1 char:25

    + import-smigserversetting <<<< -featureid dhcp -user all -group -force -path *Server Path* -verbose

            + CategoryInfo               : InvalidOperation: (:) [Import-SmigServerSetting], MigrationException

            + FullyQualifiedErrorId    : Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.Migration.Commands.ImportSvrMigSettingCommand


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
