  • What you mean by redundancy is a problem...

    If you are using DHCP on Windows 2008 (or R2), there was few redundancy options (2)

    1. Build a cluster and add the DHCP role on it
    2. Create a split scopes between DHCP and setup the 80/20 scopes.

    With Windows 2012 and later, 2 new options are available
    Failover - Hot StandBy mode
    Failover - Load Balancing mode

    This setup gives you the ability to replicate scopes (Options / Leases / Policies) between 2 DHCP servers.  Also, depending the configuration you choose, the other DHCP Server can take the load without user intervention and without having to modify the scopes percentage in the DHCP Server.
