Hello all I'm trying to setup a backup DHCP server in windows 2000. I installed active directory on this backup server also. Now my ? is that I'm trying to basically synchronize all the DHCP info to a this new backup server as smooth as possible with no conflicts. I've already installed the DHCP service and now I want to set this box up as a backup. I done this with DNS and it was pretty simple I just had to provide the installation wizard the correct info about the primary server and also let it know that DNS2 is a secondary box. Now I right clicked on new scope on dhcp2.domain.com(backup) and selected new scope but I feel that if I go on with the installation it will make the network think that dchp2 is now the primary. I know for a fact that the company consultant is waiting for me to make a mistake and also waiting for my call so he can charge us a fat amount. HELP!
