Windows Server DHCP Scope Limitation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    The maximum number of fail-over relationships for either DHCP server is defined as 31 Scope. 

    If we want to configure 200 Scopes in DHCP Infra with High availability. What is the solution ? 

    Regards,

    S Kannan

  • Hi Kannan,

    You are probably concerned about this statement (Technet article):

    The local/partner server already has 31 (maximum allowed) failover relationships. A server cannot have more than 31 failover relationships.

    So it is not connected with 31 scopes but relationships - failover relationships - server can't replicate with more than 31 other DHCP servers.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    As e-micra said,you can only establish a failover relationship with 31 other DHCP servers.And you can build the  scopes as many as you want on your DHCP server.
