DHCP scope for second location

Nasir Khan 1 Reputation point

I need to set up a DHCP scope for my second location. As of now the DHCP is setup on a domain I am looking to move away from.

I currently have two writable DC1 and DC2 at the primary location and one RODC DC3 and one writable DC4 at the second location.

I need to know if its more feasible to setup a new DHCP scope on the primary DC1 and DC2 and replicate it to DC4 on the second location (if it's doable), or to add a second DHCP server DC4 and add it to the VLAN on switches located at the second location.

I hope I was able to make myself clear.

Thank you

    Hi ,

    Did you mean you want configure one DHCP server for 2 different locations? Please feel free to let me know if I have any misunderstanding.

    For example, if DHCP server on primary location is 192.168.1.X subnet and the second location is 192.168.2.X subnet. Then you can configure 192.168.2.X on the DHCP server, but you still need to configure DHCP relay agent. Because DHCP client and DHCP server are not in the same subnet.
