I have been tasked to setup a DHCP server on win2k12 and 2k8 R2 that will allow us to get rid of the 80 / 20 rule. Therefore, it needs to provide redundancy for multiple sites. I need help in setting up the DHCP server gfor about 12 sites including the headquarter.
I read somewhere you can do this in win2k12 but I don't know about win2k8 R2.

DHCP failover is new to 2012. With 2008 R2, you still need to split scopes (80/20, etc).

So, you are saying Win2k12 can do it but Win2k8 R2 does not?

Correct. DHCP failover (without a full cluster) requires two 2012 or higher servers. 2008 R2 cannot do it at all.
