    2 Default Gateways and DHCP

    Is there a way to get DHCP scopes to load balance the DHCP clients between two default gateways?

    ie. You can configure a DHCP scope to assign the DHCP client with a default gateway; however in a situation where there are two Routers available, for redundancy and load balancing, is there a way to get DHCP to give out 2 Default Gateways, so if one fails the other will be automatically used?
    Is there a way to achieve the Load Balancing aspect also?

    Re: 2 Default Gateways and DHCP

    Some more info for this one. Two DHCP servers are servicing the same subnet (although they reside on differing subnets) - Is it possible to control which DHCP server the client will send its request for an Address to, because then we could configure a scope on each using a different Default Gateway?
    Would the two DHCP servers load balance between themselves automatically?
