We are looking to create a backup DHCP server on a single subnet network. I set server1 to give out IPs in range 10.0.0.100 to 10.0.0.195 and server2 to give out 10.0.0.196 to 10.0.0.220. Is there a way to delay the response of server2 so that server1 will always respond first to IP request, unless of course it is down?
We have a 6 day lease setup on IPs. The OS is windows 2003 standard. Both DHCP servers act as DC.
We do not want to create mutliple subnets or have to route traffic.
