DHCP Reservations

During the build of a new Domain Controller that has DHCP enabled I was wondering how I can get the DHCP reservations off the old server to the new server.  I stumbled upon this set of commands that saved my life.

On the existing (old) server:

netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all

Copy the txt file to the new server, and run this command.

On the new server:

netsh dhcp server import C:\dhcp.txt

Seems to work great, and saved me a ton of time.
