Can dhcpd4.1-p1 Communicate with dhcpd3.1.3?

	We want to transition from Version 3.1.3 to 4.1 without
loosing our lease data base.

	There are presently two servers in the usual failover
pair and the idea is to switch out the secondary first. It
appears to be happy with the dhcpd.leases file so what would
happen if we brought down the existing 3.1.3 secondary and then
replaced it with the new 4.1 secondary? Would they sync up?
Would the new secondary at least honor the existing leases? That
would be good enough since the public would not have the chaos
that results when the lease data base is lost.

	The plan is to replace the primary when the new
secondary is functioning so there is no loss of lease

	Thank you for any suggestion.
