Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Change the scope on one of them. Or even better, remove all but one DHCP server. Why would you have more than one?

Change the scopes for one. If you really NEED 2, then you could divide the VLANs up to access the diffrent servers. But, like Saturno stated, the simplest way would be to just have one server running DHCP…

    Depending on your environment you may want to have more than one DHCP server for availlability. If this is your case, you might want to complement each DHCP scope. Considering the subnet of 192.168.1.254 / 24: Server A - scope 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.128 and Server B - scope 192.168.1.129 to 129.168.254. This way, there is no overlapping scopes. (Note that this is just an example, you need to adjust to your own needs, considering reserved IP addresses for servers, DNS, routers, etc.) If your network does not need two DHCP servers and you want to simplify, just disable one of them.

    A quick google search will help - there are loads of things that could help. Windows Sites and Services / Multi Subnets / etc etc. But here was the first in the search. http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Setting-Up-DHCP-Server-Organization.html
