Good morning, When network are keep growing over time, network services such as dns and dhcp are playing an important function to any network administrators/engineers, which for a single downtime, it will cause a chaos to end users. By having redundancy/fail-over/etc services and proper plans, these failures will be mitigated and reduced, and off-course, transparent to end users.
Without proper planning, choosing suitable tools/application, and testing, I believe that deployment and management of dns and dhcp services will become headache and a big challenge to network administrators/engineers. So, in this e-mail, I would like to ask and seek advices on how do you manage these two services, and from your past experiences, which is the best free/open-souce tools to manage a big deployment of dns and dhcp services? >From the google, I found the following options which are promising for above jobs: HostDB: The Best Damn host2DNS/DHCP Script Ever Written http://www.usenix.org/event/lisa05/tech/limoncelli.html http://everythingsysadmin.com/hostdb/ Maintain http://maintainproject.osuosl.org/ Sauron http://sauron.jyu.fi/ LDAP sdb back-end for BIND 9 http://bind9-ldap.bayour.com/ Have a nice day! -zamri- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
