I have Windows SBS 2003 and I have a member Windows 2003 server. I have setup active directory on both servers (with SBS being primary of course) and also setup my member 2003 server to be a secondary DNS server. I have two subnets for two virtual lans that SBS 2003 server acts as a DHCP server for.
My question is how can I setup a redundant DHCP server on my 2003 member server in the event that my main server goes down. I ask this because this recently happened and it created mass chaos for the client computers. From what I understand, SBS won't allow more than 1 DHCP server on the network. Some people have said to setup two DHCP servers to dish out different ranges on the same subnet, but this won't work according to what I have heard from others since SBS supposedly has this 1 DHCP server limitation.
To add more redundancy, make the member server a domain controller by running DCPROMO and add it as an additional DC of your domain.
