Second DHCP Server in DHCP relay
It would be great if you could enter two DHCP server in the DHCP relay. We have two Windows 2012 R2 server with an active/standby Cluster. If the active node Fails, the secondary will take function. But we have to take care, to change the server in the relay on the UTM to let it still work.
Still not resolved? This shouldn't be hard to implement. Availability groups is a good workaround, thanks!

We have redundant DHCP and PXE in different networks.
An Availability Group seems to relay only to the first server alive, but we have to relay to each of them.

I found out that you can use an Availability Group for the DHCP server. So you can add both your DHCP servers to one Group and have a redundant configuration.

same here. In larger deployments there is often a need for multiple DHCP relay entries. e.g. one for pxe boot, capwap broadcast or just redundant DHCP servers

Yes, it should be great to config 2 DHCP-relays to access the normaly existing two DHCP-Server!
We have in this moment the problem, that a client becomes no IP-address because the last free addresses for a subnet are on the second DHCP-server. :-(
