Server 2012, RRAS & failover?

Hi,

Server 2012 Standard.

We have 2*2012 servers as domain controllers (same domain). They also do DHCP fail over. Only one of them is currently providing client VPN access.

Is it possible to use the other 2012 DC as a 'fail-over' server for remote VPN access should the other server fail?

I've been 'told' that it is possible but I'm at the early stages of finding out why & how etc.

CHeers,

Andy.

RRAS can be deployed as a failover cluster, but given your other collected roles, that wouldn't work in your existing topology. You'd be looking at some significant rearchotecture to get what you want.
