Chapter 11. DHCP/WINS/Domain Controllers > Implementing Redundant DHCP Services

Implementing Redundant DHCP Services

The previous sections of this chapter detailed features that provide Windows Server 2008 R2 DHCP administrators with the ability to gain tighter control over DHCP address resources and DHCP client configurations, as well as tighter monitoring through increased logging. The next few sections of this chapter present some important information for DHCP administrators to consider when deploying DHCP services when a redundant configuration is required.

DHCP administrators who recognize the need to provide redundancy for DHCP have been challenged for many years and have had to implement manual configurations to provide any level of redundancy. Many of these implementations lacked certain functionality and required network resources that were not always readily available, such as a suitable second server to deploy DHCP services on. DHCP services redundancy can be achieved by either deploying multiple DHCP servers running overlapping or split scopes or by deploying clustered DHCP services. Many organizations do not have the administrative support or budget to deploy clustered DHCP services, so the more common approach to providing DHCP redundancy is to deploy multiple DHCP servers running split scopes.
