we have a DC with dhcp server each in two location and they are link through point to point wireless and with an ADSL router independently, suddenly our DC from other location just died, was not booting up anymore. The clients are not getting any IP from the server. I was planning to hook them up to the other location, how do i create a muliple dhcp server so that they get an ip address to their computers?  

location 1 - 192.168.147.0 - DC is down
location 2 - 192.168.146.0
 
any help please?

Hi,

May i know how the DHCP Servers are configured?

Are they configured with Split-scope or both DHCP servers with seperate scopes?

If you are wondering what is split-scope and how to go about it.

Check this

Let me know if that was helpfull even if it is not :)

Router - 192.168.147.1
Dhcp server - 192.168.147.11

Location 2---IP Range: 192.168.146.101-192.168.146.200
Router - 192.168.146.7
Dns server: 192.168.146.51

Routing switch: 192.168.146.1

Please try the split-scope option from the above link and check if that helps.

Keep me posted :)
