    I am testing migrating DHCP from a W2K server to Server 2008. I followed the
    2000 to 2003 instructions from MS hoping it would be the same.


    For the most part it looks like it worked. What is odd is that I can see
    none of the migrated leases through the Local DHCP MMC. However it does show
    the reservations, just not existing leases.

    If I open the DHCP MMC on another machine they show up fine.

    I am trying to understand why. Also, I did not do the Jetpack and wonder if
    that may be the issue.

    Could anyone tell me if the Jetpack step is needed or why?

    Yes, I am familiar with NETSH and used it for the import as specified in the
    link from my first post. If you read the link you will noticed this part:

    "Note The export option does not exist in the netsh command on Windows 2000
    Server. The netsh dhcp server dump and netsh dhcp server import commands are
    not compatible."

    I already imported the database. It just does not look right in the MMC.

    This would be a lot easier I think if my DHCP was on a 2003 server. I hope I
    do not have to migrate from 2000 to 2003 to 2008 to make it work.
