Windows 2000 DHCP option 003 two router IP's
Posted on 2006-04-06
We have two T1's in different buildings. We are going to connect the two buildings with fiber optic cable, but I would still like to make use of the T1 in the other building. I noticed you can add multiple routers in the 003 DHCP option. Are there any performance issues with doing this, or is there a way to add a metric in the DHCP options. I am thinking about changes my scope to include the both the 192.168.102.1 and 103.1 subnets. Exclude the 103.1 from the scope, and using this as a redundant gateway in the event our primary T1 fails. Has anyone done this, and knows that it will work? Are there any known performance issues with doing this?
