Internal DHCP-Server in HA Mode


Userlevel 1
Hi Guys,

how could i realize a setup in HA when the first controller is DHCP server and goes down?
Do I have to setup a DHCP with the same range on the 2nd controller and the adresses got sychronized (i know it is a bad idea to run two DHCP - is there a clever internal controller to controller communication)? Or do I have to setup the 2nd controller to a different range?
Customer had a solution where addresses where synced accros both controllers. Now wants to implement Extreme Wireless and came along with this question.

Thanks,
Stephan
