You all know how to setup a DHCP Server it is easy , start,run,appwiz.cpl,add components,network services<> ADD DHCP.
Well it is almost the same but than different.
So here is my cluster Windows 2008 R2
I created a 5 Gb ISCSI disk and added this to my cluster.
So the first step we do is add the dhcp role to the cluster .start the server Manager to add the role
Now start the cluadmin.msc and under services and applications right click <> configure a Service or application
Select the DHCP Role and as you can see my node 3 does not have the DHCP Role, I decide to ignore this error ! to get errors for troubleshooting later !
In the beginning we had this error no dhcp on node 3. if you missed this the next screen can’t be missed
To bad this error is also in yellow. So I have a failure but it is no show stopper.
the nice thing about this is it is a cluster resource single point of configuration one console to set all. I created my scope just like in NT in the properties there are new Tabs
there is a new configure button name protection This feature supports prevention of name squatting issues caused due to non-Windows OS machines. Using this feature one could prevent registration of non-Windows OS machine with a same name that is already registered for another machine in DNS Server.
there is the collision detection works if you have multiple DHCP servers with the same scope.
One this that is important is the credentials to register the IP in the DNS if you are running a secure DNS
Next time we do WINS / DFS
