DHCP removal problem

Argh!

This is getting odd.

I have 2 DHCP servers in my single domain (for fault tolerance) ... MASTER and SLAVE. I want to total disable MASTER, reformat the computer etc ...

So, I expanded the SLAVE scope and configed all the clients - they are all happily picking up IP's from SLAVE.

I 'disable' the SCOPE on MASTER .. cool.

So, I ADD/REMOVE programs and remove DHCP from MASTER ... within the next hour or so, SLAVE is no longer Authorised ! I cannot Authorise the DHCP server (errors in event log) ... so I reinstall DHCP on MASTER and authorise it again (no scope is set up)  ... I can now reauthorise SLAVE and it runs ok

So, SLAVE seems to be totally dependant on MASTER being a DHCP server ... even if there is no scope on MASTER.

How weird is that ?

*cries*

Hi
Sounds odd but probably a perfectly reasonable explanation for it somewhere. Here's a potential solution for you

I realise what my main problem was ... the DHCP unregisters the itself from DNS on remove (which as as DC is a problem) .. which can then cause all sorts of problems ...

I sorted it in the end. Thanks.
