Hi all

when configuring 2 or more IP helper-address servers. what is the default behaviour. Round robin, or 1st listed is Primary etc..

I will keep on looking for a documented confirmation.

Hi Sam

Both ip helper-addresses are used at the same time ie the router will forward a unicast to all the servers listed as helper addresses. It's then down to who answers first to the client.
