Address Manager supports the configuration and management of DHCP failover on managed Windows DHCP servers running Windows Server 2012 or greater. Windows DHCP failover can be configured on a DHCP scope previously configured on the Microsoft Management Console (scopes are known as network in Address Manager).
In Read-Only mode, import functionalities in Address Manager have been enhanced to let you import all DHCP failover information for all managed Windows Server interfaces that are predefined in Address Manager.
- Customers with DDW servers in Read-Only mode can import all pre-existing DHCP
failover relationships from managed Windows Servers into Address Manager.
For details, refer to Importing Windows DHCP failover relationships.
In Read-Write mode, customers can create, manage and deploy DHCP failover relationships on managed Windows servers from the Address Manager interface by performing the following:
- Create a Windows DHCP failover relationship between two predefined managed Windows Server Interfaces in Address Manager
- Define a DHCP deployment role between the two managed Windows Server Interfaces and apply the created DHCP failover relationship to this pair of server interfaces
- Deploy DHCP on both the pair of managed Windows Servers defined in the Windows DHCP
