Two DHCP Servers
Posted on 2016-07-25
Good Morning Experts,
I need to move DHCP off of a failing server. I have done this before in the past without issue and have confirmed it is working correctly in testing.
My question is, can two of them run at the same time or will they assign duplicate addresses?
There are a few systems that are running processes that we are unable to turn off the other server just yet and I would like to confirm the load on the new one before cutting the service on the original.
I'd love to get this done during my working hours, which it looks like I would be able to if I can run them together, otherwise I will schedule after business hours for cutover.
The new server is 2008 R2, the old server is 2008 Standard.
