Well, that's true, but I do do it indirectly. I assign fixed addresses for servers by MAC address and host name in DHCP and manage the IP address of that host through FreeIPA DNS. If you tell DHCP that a particular MAC address is a particular host name, when that host requests a DHCP allocated address, the DHCP server does a DNS lookup on the host name and gives the machine a lease on the address. I have no idea if that is intended behaviour or if it is something that isn't a good idea for some reason, I discovered that it worked by accident! It has simplified my small setup however as DNS and therefore FreeIPA control the fixed IP addresses of the servers. I do have to remember to set up each fixed address's MAC address and host name in the DHCP configuration when I create it, but it makes reconfiguring fixed IP addresses a breeze. It ought to be possible to script synchronisation of the DHCP configuration with the host information in FreeIPA, but I only deal with a handful of machines, so I've never bothered.
