DHCP hot standby mode failover can have the same IP address after MCLT?

Copper Contributor

Hi ,


I have a question about DHCP failover, in DHCP hot standby mode, if the primary DHCP server is down or unavailable, the standby DHCP server will take over and assign new IP address for the new client, but the old client has assigned IP address by the primary(active) DHCP server will be renewed the same IP address by standby DHCP server in MCLT(default is 1 hour), just want to know if pass(after) 1 hour, it will be renewed again by standby DHCP server with the same IP address? all the old client can be renewed with the same IP address as they obtained before?

many thanks.
