We are using the following script :

# Set dhcp server in partner down state
new failover-state
set name = "Name-of-your-failover-peer-in-configfile"
set local-state = 4

Kind regards

I am operating two ISC DHCP servers as active/backup.
However during an outage I would like to operate the backup server in "partner down" state so that it can utilize all the IP's.Any suggestion how can I manually place the backup server in partner down state.I have checked there is a script that can be used but that's not working for me will appreciate it someone can help me out here.
