  • on the second server ( which is not DHCP Server ) you need to install the Feature DHCP Server tools

    which you can find it after expanding Remote Server Administrations Tools (RSAT) as shown below .

  • Add the remote server via start\run\dhcpmgmt.msc (or find dhcp management from the administrative tools menu).

    If you don't have this console, add the dhcp management console from the add roles wizard
