Migrating DHCP From Windows Server 2003 to 2012 R2

Windows Server 2003 is reaching the end of its lifecycle (14 July, 2015). To address this concern, Microsoft provides great tools to assist organizations in their migration efforts ”Windows Server Migration Tools.”

Unfortunately this tool requires installation on both the destination and source server (NET 3.5, Powershell and the tool Windows Server Migration Tool). If you want to move a single service like DHCP it might sometimes be preferable and even faster to just simply use the built-in commands.

Below is a quick step-by-step guide to migrate DHCP from Windows 2003 to Windows 2012 R2 using netsh command.
