2 dhcp servers
just setup a 2nd DHCP server serving different ranges in the same subnet. mainly dhcp is for laptops but we've started adding newer machines with reservations.
It's just occurred to me that if all the reservations are on 1 server and the computer goes to the other....
what to do...between an 2003server dhcp and an ubuntu dhcp
put the reservations on both?
tell the ubuntu one to check the 2003 one somehow?

You need identical reservations on each server.

why do you need 2 DHCP servers?

For redundancy and load balancing.

There isn't a command at all, reservations are defined in a config file that you need to write (there may be tools, I don't know of any). It's plain text and so is the export, so a little sed and awk and you'll be away
