error 0x00004E2D an error occured while accessing the dhcp database

When doing the Split Scope wizard in Server 2008 R2 to split a dhcp scope over 2 servers, i ran into this error.
Turned off virusscanners to prevent locks on the database, to no avail.
I was able to do a proper backup of the dhcp database using
netsh dhcp server export
But still got the error when trying to go through the split scope wizard.
Then i did a Reconcile on the scope, which turned up with a few errors.
I let it fix it, then reran the Reconcile. No more errors.
After thath, the split scope ran just fine!
