DHCP Database Backup and Restore Automation

The process of backing up all DHCP settings and restoring them onto the same (or a different) server has been streamlined in Windows Server 2003. No longer do you need to export Registry keys and manually move databases between servers to migrate DHCP because the Backup and Restore process can be accomplished directly from the MMC. The process for backing up and restoring a DHCP database is as follows:

Open the DHCP Manager by choosing Start, All Programs, Administrative Tools, DHCP.

Right-click the server name and choose Backup, as illustrated in Figure 13.24.
