DHCP Redundancy and Reservations
Posted on 2006-03-23
Okay I have 2 Windows 2003 DHCP Servers. I have reservations set up for .2, .3, .4, and .5 IP Addresses. If I set up the reservations in both DHCP Servers I get an IP Policy conflict. If I set up the servers to give out different IP address ranges the reserved clients will receive the IP from the DHCP server without the reservations. The same goes if I set up reservations on one server and not on the other.
What I end up doing is diabling the DHCP server without the reservation then rebooting the client the starting the DHCP server again.
I would like to have the fault tolerance for both DHCP servers with my reservations and without having to start and stop the DHCP service.
Thank you for your help
