Converting from load sharing to stand alone

We are having some problems with our dhcp servers in a failover setup.  Our managment has asked me to convert the failover setup to a stand alone.  (Against my better judgment) I know dhcpd.leaes keeps track of every ip address for both peers, but are their any pitfalls I should be aware of when converting to this?  My plan was to copy the dhcpd.leases file from the current primary server, and remove the "failover" stanzas that dictate what state each peer is in.  I know there are additional fields for each lease, but my hope is dhcp will recognize this field as not needed and simply ignore it.  Is this correct, or am I biting off more than I can chew?
