Migrate DHCP from Microsoft to ISC DHCP on Linux


Has anyone ever migrated DHCP services from Microsoft to ISC DHCP on Linux? I couldn't find any type of auto-migrate tool and am doing it by hand. The export tools MS provides only export the DHCP DB into a format where you can then import it into another MS DHCP database, afaik.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Ryan

Hi,

I wounder why you are facing problem in migration, while dhcpd.conf has nothing much to do except just mentioning the IP range and router, dns etc. IPs, still if you find deficulty then make use of /usr/share/docs/dhcp-x.y/sample-dhcpd.conf

it is a nice tutorial it self

enjoy

You might wish to take a look at Samba. The Samba server can fuction as a DHCP server in a windows network.

I was looking for some type MS DHCP export utility that converts everything into a CSV or something similar.

I'm not having a problem manually typing in all the scopes, im just looking for a more automated method.

We are trying to get away from MS.
