Windows Server DHCP conversion to Cisco CLI
Author: Justin Cooksey
I recently ran in to an issue where I needed to convert a reasonably large DHCP database from a Windows Server in to a Cisco CLI to allow the Cisco to take over DHCP roles for a subnet. I found nothing that realy automated this task, even using the exported XML file. So knowing that this was the second time I needed the tool, and likely to need it again, even if it was for smaller tasks, I set about coding it in Powershell. It is the scripting system well supported in Windows land.
The current version of the script can be found on my GitHub repository: Convert-WindowsDHCPToCisco
Still ha smany DHCP options that it hasn’t been setup to hanle at this point but it does follow the basic ones that most of us use.
