    Is it possible to specify which of a number of DHCP servers on a
    network one particular computer will use to obtain an IP address?

    Regards

  2. No - what are you trying to accomplish? You shouldn't have more than one
    DHCP server on any network segment unless it's for redundancy, and then only
    if you don't have overlapping scopes.

    AFAIK, no. Because when the computer starts it requests a DHCP server and
    the first that responds is the one that assigns the addresses.
