So we had 2 existing DHCP servers as follows and there scopes

Server 1 through 174 through 174

Server 2 through 249 through 249

Everything works as expected if one fails the other kicks in and works fine

recently we added anther VLAN and Subnet to our network and created these 2 new scopes which now looks like this

Server 1 through 174 through 174 through 174

Server 2 through 249 through 249 through 249

Now the problem is this new subnet 192.168.2.x DHCP only works from Server 1.    If I disable server 1 to test the other DHCP fails from client devices.

I have recreated the scope,   restarted servers... and reset devices and nothing works

Any ideas suggestions to fix?
