Log in to the server from which you want to move or copy data.
Become superuser or assume a role or user name that is assigned to the DHCP Management profile.
For more information about the DHCP Management profile, see Setting Up User Access to DHCP Commands.
Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
Export the data.
You can export all of the DHCP data, or specific parts of the data.
To export specific addresses, macros, and options, type a command that uses the following format:
# dhcpconfig -X filename -a network-addresses -m macros -o options
filename is the full path name that you want to use to store the compressed exported data. You specify particular network addresses, DHCP macros, and DHCP options in comma-separated lists. The following example shows how to export specific networks, macros, and options.
# dhcpconfig -X /var/dhcp/0dhcp1065_data \ -a 10.63.0.0,10.62.0.0 \ -m 10.63.0.0,10.62.0.0,SUNW.Sun-Blade-100 -o Sterm
To export all DHCP data, type a command that uses the ALL keyword.
# dhcpconfig -X filename -a ALL -m ALL -o ALL
filename is the full path name that you want to use to store the compressed exported data. The keyword ALL can be used with the command options to export all the network addresses, macros, or options. The following example shows how to use the ALL keyword.
# dhcpconfig -X /var/dhcp/dhcp1065_data -a ALL -m ALL -o ALL
You can omit the export of a particular kind of data by not specifying the dhcpconfig command option for that type of data. For example, if you do not specify the -m option, no DHCP macros are exported.
See the dhcpconfig(1M) man page for more information about the dhcpconfig command.
Move the export file to a location that is accessible to the server that must import the data.
Import the data as described in How to Import Data on a DHCP Server (dhcpconfig -I).
