  • Failover is a feature that is available only with Windows 2012 and later.  windows 2008 / 2008 R2 does not support DHCP Failover

    Details

    Operating system

    Windows Server® 2012, or a later operating system is required.

    Both DHCP servers in a DHCP failover relationship must be running Windows Server® 2012 or a later operating system. Servers do not need to both be running the same operating system, but this is recommended to ensure consistent replication of settings.
