I have 2x MS Windows 2012 DHCP servers, and I configured my scopes on a Failover Server-1->Server-2 relationship . It all works fine when Server 1 becomes unavailable and Server-2 takes over.
My question is.. If Server-1 hard crashes (like non-recoverable BSOD) and Server-2 takes over... and i am forced to reinstall Server-1 from scratch.. how do I restablish the failover relationship, without loosing the dhcp config (scopes, reservations, etc).
Does Server-2 recognize Server-1 when it's back online, although it's brand new installed and empty? Yes I'd be naming the server the same as it was before and joining it to the domain.
