We're using the ethers table in NIS today to generate DHCP config files for 
clients to we can send
different TFTP,DNS,etc options to different clients depening on which type of 
machine they are
(mostly Windows, Linux, etc). At some locations we're also required to only 
serve IP to clients
known by mac address.

I'm missing a ethers table in IPA. Having the MAC address added as an attribute 
to the host
object, and a lookup table for ethers, like hostgroup to netgroup is done would 
be very useful.

Any plans for this?
