Migrating DHCP roles between Windows servers can be painful. I wanted to share my favorite method for doing this. I think it is the least difficult and the most effective way of getting your DHCP services moved to a newer Windows server with ZERO downtime. It isn’t perfect and it can fail. However, it works most of the time and when it does, you will feel like it was too easy!
Over the years I have seen so many approaches to migrating Windows file server shares to new servers. Most methods are valid and some are down right brilliant uses of native tools. I have an affinity for migrating shares in a specific way that does not utilize the native tools. It has worked really well for me over the years and I want to share it with all those out there that might need help with shares that are problematic.
