w2k3 - dhcp resilience ?

By tomhass ·
Hi - I have 2 x DC/DHCP/DNS servers on small network (50 clients) - ran up DNS with Primary/secondary setup - pretty standard stuff. 1st time resilient DHCP though - running 2 x DHCP on DCs with separate scope as per Microsoft recommendations but DNS/DHCP gets confused sometimes - I get 2 x DHCP leases (1 per DHCP server) for the same clients (4 out of the 50) and I am note sure if this will bite me at some point.

Seeking advice...


Thanks

Tom

normally if you have two dhcp service you should split a range of ip address on two server exp 10.130.1.10-100 on one server and 10.130.1.101-255 on other server. DON'T make both server with same ip scope.

I have split scope across the 2 servers:-

Server 1 - 192.168.100.50 thru 192.168.100.100
Server 2 - 192.168.100.101 thru 192.168.100.151

It seemed that I was following Microsoft's guidelines...??
