depending on the size of your LAN,
the bootphelper and clients will all know the address of the original server.

Subject: Moving server to new host
I want to move DHCP from one host to another on my LAN. Is it sufficient to 
stop the old server, move the config and lease file, and then bring up the 
server on the new host? Any gotchas to worry about?
