I need to migrate a DHCP database (the whole thing) from a server that is a domain member to a server that is a standalone server. Please don't ask me why, it is a necessary evil. :) There are a few hundred leases and about 20 scopes. I plan to shut down the service in the middle of the night, export the database, import it on the new server, change the DHCP relay on the necessary switches and call it a night.
When I export the database and import it on the new server during a test run, it tells me that I need to authorize the server. Now, obviously I can't do that since this is a standalone server. There isn't even the "authorize" option in the menu. I'd appreciate any insight into this issue. I'm going from Server 2003 R2 to 2008 x86.
