You need to decide what kind of failover you want. If you click the drop-down list at the right of Mode you will see the two available modes.

  • Load balance – both the DHCP servers lease IPv4 addresses and configurations
  • Hot standby – one server is a primary server and the other is the secondary. That means that the primary server leases IPv4 addresses and the secondary only when the primary is offline/unavailable.

Specify a name and a shared secret.

If you choose Hot standby you need to specify the Maximum Client Lead Time, which is the time that the secondary server should wait until it takes over. You need to specify the role of Partner Server and the Addresses reserved for standby server.
