Running 2 DHCP Servers (W2K, W2K3) on same network
Posted on 2004-04-15
I am trying to find some documententation which will confirm what is possible for running 2 Windows 2K/2K3 DHCP servers on the same network.
I tried to setup and run two DHCP servers, one on a domain controller (2k), the other on a 2k3 member server. Their scopes did not overlap, but one of them stopped itself because it detected another DHCP server running. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the prescise error/event id, because someone cleared the event logs without saving them (handy).
Im really just looking for a document (micorsoft preferred), which says what you can and can't do with multiple DHCP servers.
My suspicion at this point is that it didn't work properly because the 2K3 server wansn't a domain controller. Just a guess.
