Recommendations & Best Practices» An 80/20 split is recommended for high availability scenarios (80 for the serer that needs to be available at all times and 20 for the other DHCP server).  In this case you also have to specify the delay time in the Offer Delay text field.  This will ensure that your backup server would start with IP address provisioning only when primary DHCP server doesn’t respond in a given time.» A 50/50 split is recommended for load-balancing purposesIt is to be noted that:» The split scope operation can ONLY be performed between 2 Microsoft DHCP servers or between 2 Cisco DHCP servers, and NOT between a Microsoft DHCP server and a Cisco DHCP server.» When SolarWinds IPAM does the scope splitting for the target server, it excludes the IP addresses from the source server and reserves it for the assignment by the target server.
