Lost Contact with Partner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

      I have Windows 2008R2 DHCP server with my old domain ( but we are using that DHCP server for my new domain( client. have two windows2012R2 servers setup as hot standby. ( Fail over)

     I just try to import DHCP one scope to DHCP Server. Import was successful. But  both dhcp services has stopped and couldn't restart. Only option was to restore the DB. 

    So i just restored to the main DHCP server and restart the server and all users start working. then reboot the secondary dhcp too.

    noticed that Failover  state: lost contact with partner since last week. Also noticed that some clients who connected to secondary dhcp lost some scope options and i have to add manually to work.

    Now how do i fix this lost contact with partner? i try to remove the failover relationship but it wont complete?
