Hi there!

I am setting up DHCP failover, do you know what is the correct config about forwarding broadcast dhcp messages?

 

The subnet gw should forward broadcast to one failover peer or both peers?

or

The dhcp server should forward broadcast to one failover peers or both?

 

Thanks in advance

The local router needs to have two ip helpers configured to forward DHCP packets to both DHCP servers, if you only forward to one DHCP server you will likey have problems.
