Ah, I see. This is rather old and deprecated guide (see
http://www.freeipa.org/page/Upstream_User_Guide for details), but this
information is even in the newest guide:


I am not sure how this should be practically achieved actually. Automember can
only decide on information that is already in the entry in LDAP ADD, or later
when Automembership task is explicitly re-run.

I think we should simply change this use case as it is not true. I filed a
ticket to fix the docs:

I see. I suspect you would have to do some scripting around that, for example a
cron job or any other job that would find the IP address of the new hosts,
store the subnet or other identificator in FreeIPA host entry and run
automembership for this entry.

This would add the right membership, based on the rules.
