I'm trying to migrate of my NIS databases to freeipa and have got to the
hosts database.

In NIS a typical entry is:
ipaddress canonical_name [aliases...]

but I don't see how to enter the ipaddress or aliases using the ipa
host-* commands. Is that possible?

Maybe this is supposed to be done with the ipa dns commands, but I don't
want freeipa to control the dns as we have an existing external dns
infrastructure to fit into.

How should I configure freeipa to do host lookups for aliases like NIS does?

While NIS supports hosts maps, FreeIPA strongly encourages the use of
DNS, as such we do not have direct means of providing or querying hosts


ok so I have to see how we can run the freeipa servers as dns servers alongside the corporate servers for our domain.

I'm not sure how to proceed since I've no idea what the issues could be. Can you give me any hints or point to any docs?
