    We are looking into how we can provide DHCP redundancy in particular using an automatic switching method. At the moment, we have one server acting as a DHCP server and another as a backup DHCP server, with a copy of the DHCP scope. The problem with this method is that we have to manually reconfigure the IP Helper on the switches and manually activate the backup DHCP scopes when the main DHCP server goes down but we want to automate this process.

    Is there a method we can employ to do this?
