Failover on a large DHCP system

 From our testing, it looks like DHCP failover will work well for us.  
Unfortunately we are using DHCP for network access by registering  
hosts in DHCP. Our current system relies on restarts to add new hosts  
to DHCP. Until we can get our registration process to use omshell we  
will have to wait to implement DHCP failover. With constant restarts  
of DHCP and the need for failover to redistribute the pools on  
restarts I think the server load and disk access would be too high.
