LKBEN10649: Howto dump all dhcp server information in a text file


You need to get a backup of all your dhcp setting in a textfile




You can use the netsh command to do this. Here the command has been executed on the dhcp server.

netsh dhcp server dump > c:\temp\dump.txt

Now you have all the information to setup a new dhcp server system.

To import this information you use:

netsh exec c:\temp\dump.txt

Please note that the command "netsh dhcp server import" does NOT do the job!

Also note that you need the same IP address and Netbios name for the new server! Wenn this is not the case, you need to edit and replace these in the exported file.
