So whats new in DHCP !?! Well alot apparently :

DHCP name protection can be configured in properties at the IP level or scope level

DHCP failover

Failure of DHCP will result in loss of network connectivity for clients

DHCP name protection 

Windows systems can have their DNS name registrations overwritten by non-Microsoft systems bearing the same system name

How to Configure Failover for DHCP

Failover relationships must have unique names

The MCLT determines when a failover partner takes control of the subnet or scope

Failover supports two modes:

Hot Standby Mode

Load Sharing Mode

Auto State Switchover Interval determines when a failover partner is considered to be down

Message authentication can validate the failover messages

Firewall rules are auto-configured during DHCP installation
