DHCP

We have 2 DHCP servers.   How do you determine which one is the main DHCP server.
Does DHCP have the capability if one fails to roll over to the other one, like DNS, primary, secondary.

The IP allocations on both servers are not the same.

Thanks

There is no main server, both will respond to requests for IP addresses and the client will respond to the first server to offer an IP address. Failover is automatic, if one DHCP server fails to respond with the offer of an IP address the client will accept the IP adress from the other.
