    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?

    thx

    You need identical reservations on each server.

    For redundancy and load balancing.

    ok. that's what i kind of thought.

    I can export the reservations with netsh. is there a netsh like command for adding them on ubuntu? (dhcp3-server)

    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
