2 Catalyst 6509 MSFC II with "redundacy DHCP Server on MSFC II"


If i have 2 Catalyst 6509 with MSFCII can i configure a "virtual" DHCP like the VIP HSRP for routing functions ?

When i configure the DHCP scope on the 1st 6509 the client send a broadcast packet for lease an ip on that vlan and the lease is OK

Is possible to configure another DHCP on the 2nd 6509 for "backup function" ?

Can i use the IP Redundancy function or other function on the IOS MSFC II between the 2 catalyst ?

Thanks to all.
