Cluster Administration

Enhancement: Added a new feature that allows clustering of two remote appliances that ensures uninterrupted DNS/DHCP services; through a virtual IP, shared within the cluster's nodes. When one of the nodes fails, the other node continues to provide the services without interruption.
