The DHCP Failover Protocol
Topic Area:
Track: Enterprise Solutions
Topic: Networks
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/11/99   08:30 AM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 8

Presenter:
David Orth
Technical Support Specialist, Process Software Corporation  

Abstract:
One of the shortcomings of DHCP lies in achieving truly redundant server operations. Using multiple servers in a single network typically requires separate address pools and frequently results in duplicate address assignments and inefficient address usage. Recent work in the Internet Engineering Task Force's DHC Working Group has been addressing this shortcoming with the development of the DHCP Failover protocol. This session discusses this protocol and how it safely allows two servers to work together (and independently) in assigning addresses to clients without duplication and using a common address pool. The session also highlights how the servers coordinate lease activity, continue to operate even in difficult situations, such as network partitioning and server failures, and synchronize after a failure. Acronyms used: DHCP: Dynamic Host Control Protocol DHC Wg: Dynamic Host Control Working Group

Objectives:
Understand the benefits of highly available dynamic IP address management services.
 
Understand how the DHCP Failover Protocol achieves highly reliable operation despite network and server failures.
 
Evaluate this new technology.  

Prerequisites for attendees:
Some exposure to dynamic Internet Address assignment is beneficial.

Required Skill Level:
Advanced
For experienced professionals in application development & system management; those working on large & complex systems
