Running DHCP in two locations

ahmad1467 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Currently my company has two sites, site A and site B these sites are connected wirelessly and have their own subnet. My site B gets its DHCP from site A, what I want to do is add a DCHP server to my site B so that the users in site get DHCP in site B. Is it possible to have both DHCP servers running?
If I can do this can I still leave DNS where it is which is site A?
The way that I think this would work is disable that scope for site B in my site A DHCP scope and only add that scope to my DHCP scope in site B. I am running Windows 2003 Server Standard in both sites, does this sound doable?
