2012R2 DHCP cluster
Posted on 2016-09-22
Okay. I need someone to clarify something for me. I am wanting to build a 2012R2 DHCP cluster. Most places I read, with 2012R2 you actually dont need to build a Windows cluster with shared storage like you had to do in the past. You only install the DHCP roles on both servers, setup (or import existing) scopes onto one of the boxes. Then use the failover function in DHCP to set up the cluster. Both DHCP databases constantly replicate information back and forth (depending on if you have it set for Load balancing or Hot Standby). Now this morning I read on a forum where a user said you had to set up a Windows cluster. I dont believe that to be true. Just trying to save myself some work. So, the 500 point question remains. Do I or do I not have to create a windows cluster.....
