Hi all,

Find my work here : https://bitbucket.org/Firstyear/freeipa-dhcp

I currently have a large set of changes sitting on my laptop awaiting
push / formation of a patch for review. I'll try to send this in at some
stage today.

Take a look at
for my "todo" list, and at
http://www.freeipa.org/page/DHCP_Integration_Design for some of my
planning about this integration. Both are subject to change in the near
future however.

At this stage, if you just pull my changes, the Schema for isc-dhcp is
included and will work in a default install of FreeIPA if you feel like
manually adding in your objects. However, the risk is that in the future
the work I am doing will clobber the efforts you make in setting this up
by hand. If you are still interested in doing a setup by hand, look at
the file /usr/share/doc/dhcp-4.2.4/ldap/README.ldap from the dhcp
package on fedora.

I'm still a way from being able to run the "ipa-dhcp-install" command,
or even testing this, but once I get to that point, I'll let you know so
you can test this out. My first goal is getting the command line tools
to be "solid" then turning my attention to the WebUI.

Feel free to chat to me about this more, on the FreeIPA-devel list, or
the #freeipa irc channel.
