    I have found 2 articles on how to perform this action.

    Microsoft Article ID: 325473 - Last Review: March 27, 2007 - Revision: 19.5
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325473 shows how to perform this action.

    A tech republic article was written by William C. Schmied
    http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-5034284.html (wrote from
    2002-03-19 to 2004-12-28) and only had 3 responses that were questions or
    statements. No comments about actually using or having success with these
    instructions were found.

    While the article written up in Tech Republic sounds nice and easy, I must
    ask if it is too good to be true. Why would the Microsoft KB article be so
    different? There has got to be some type of caveat.

    My issue is that I need to make certain that any DHCP databases do not get
    corrupted on the new 2003 server. The methods that are used in the microsoft
    article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325473 are completely different that
    that in TechRepublic
    http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-5034284.html. I need to
    know why. I have another person in the politics/rack that is going to use
    the TechRepuiblic method on a production server. I have to make absolutely
    certain that all DHCP related files/folders/databases/etc do not get
    corrupted. Without a knowledgeable and professional answer, I may be
    rebuilding a server because someone at the rack did not want to listen. My
    gut tells me that TechRepublic is incorrect, as they just copy folders and
    make a couple regedits. Microsoft discusses extracting and importing
    databases using certain tools. I need to know the reason why they are so
    different.
