Sync DHCP reservation to another server

Hello Experts,

I have two DHCP servers in a split configuration. I'm trying to figure a way to copy/merge a reservation list from server A to server B

anyone have any suggestions.

My environment consists of Windows server 2008 R2 enterprise.

If your scope is split, there's no need to have the same reservation lists on both machines.

Paul are you sure about that? My understanding for a split scope is for high availability and failover..
Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
A split scope assigns portions of a whole scope to several servers so that, if a server goes down, there are other servers that can still handle requests.

Server 2012 does have a new DHCP Failover configuration, but it's not available in Server 2008, and it's not split scope.

You could put DHCP on two servers in a failover cluster, but that seems like overkill.
