Move DHCP from NW 5.0 Server to NW 6.5 server

I am in the process of bringing up a new NW 6.5 SP3 server so I can move my
DHCP off of an old NW5.0 server. Once I have my new server up I assume after
loading DHCPSRVR on the 6.5 server I should just have to point my DHCP
subnets to the new server correct? Is it better to use iManager to do this
or the DHCP Management Console? Or does it matter at all?

Re: Move DHCP from NW 5.0 Server to NW 6.5 server

Using the DNSDHCP management console:
-Create a new server
-change the subnets to the new server
-load dhcpsrvr on teh NW65 server

On your internal routers
-change the routers to point the DHCP helper to the new server

Test.

once this works take the old dhcp server down.

Yep, then unload DHCPSRVR on the old server, and load it on the new one.

If iManager works for you, there's nothing wrong with using it. The MC
is fine as well, as long as you're using the version from NW65.
