Summary

This chapter discussed using a DHCP cluster to provide a level of fault tolerance for DHCP in Windows 2000. Since DHCP is a mission-critical network application for most organizations, having a degree of failover protection is a requirement.

The DHCP Service in Windows 2000 is a cluster-aware application. This means that the service can be installed on a cluster and in the event that a node in the cluster fails, the Cluster service will start the DHCP Service on another node.

Installing a Windows 2000 Cluster can be a lengthy process, and it is important to do planning and research before attempting the installation. This chapter covered this entire planning and build process.
