Windows Serrver 2003 DHCP Question
Posted on 2007-12-03
I have some DHCP questions I am sure have an easy answer... so here goes. We currently have two Windows Server 2003 DHCP servers. Our second server is configured as follows:
Address Pool: 10.1.9.1 - 10.1.9.255 Disribution
10.1.9.1 - 10.1.9.11 Exclusion
The first server is as follows:
Address Pool: 10.1.3.1 - 10.1.4.255 Distribution
10.1.7.X - 10.1.8.X Reserved by MAC address
Here are my thoughts...
I have set up the second DHCP as a failover in case the first DHCP fails.
1. Would this be a sufficient setup in an environment where we only need about 200 clients?
2. How can I get a good failover for my reservations from the first server, maybe by entering the same reservations on the second???
3. Our first DHCP server just recently started to not automatically start when the server is rebooted. It can be started manually and it works fine after that. Any ideas on what to try that would fix this?
