What would not be available if I bring down my main DC? I do have a secondary one running.

Hello,
 After hours I need to bring down my virtual main domain controller for about 10 minutes. I do have a secondary one running with ADUC and DNS but not DHCP. Can you forsee any problems happening? Client computers get their DNS server IP's from the DHCP server that resides on the one I'm going to take down.

Thanks all,
BW

How can I tell if it is a GC?

Thanks
In the DHCP scope on the main domain controller both DNS servers are listed but this is the machine I'm taking down

Thanks to both of you. I've split up the points accordingly. They are both GC's. I've fixed the problem on the main controller w/o having to down it but I'm still going to do a split scope as both of you recommended.
