Remove a previously created or imported Windows DHCP failover relationship. Deletion might be necessary if you have reached the maximum number of 31 failover relationships on your Windows DHCP Servers.

Note: STOP! Before you delete a Windows DHCP failover relationship

BlueCat advises customers to use caution before deleting an existing Windows DHCP failover relationship.

  • Deleting a Windows DHCP failover relationship and deploying the configuration will remove DHCP redundancy on the Windows Servers for the scopes associated with the relationship.
  • In addition, the Secondary Server and all DHCP failover relationship parameters will be dropped for any networks associated with the deleted Windows DHCP failover relationship. However, the scope will retain a single DHCP deployment role for the Primary Server.
  • Any DHCP failover deployment roles using the deleted Windows DHCP failover relationship will be converted to non-failover roles.

Deletion of a Windows DHCP failover relationship will be recorded in the Audit Log and the Transaction Log.
