How to Import dhcp.txt exported from 2003 into 2008

    I've setup a new 2008 server. Among other things, I've installed the dhcp
    service on the server. I'd like to import the leases and settings from the
    active dhcp server running on Windows 2003. I've been able to find similar
    references for the process, but not for the Server 2008 DHPC server. It
    doesn't seem to be able to accept the dhcp.txt file I exported from Server
    How do I import this information into the DHCP server on Server 2008?

    Thank you for your kind attention. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to reply to my own post, but I found the answer.

    On the 2008 server I ran the following command
    netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcp.txt all
    where dhcp.txt was created on the 2003 server by
    netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all

    That was too easy.
