We have been rolling out Kea in our environment, but have run into a major 
snag, which is not being able to configure multiple subdomains for DDNS.  As we 
have been moving networks off of ISC DHCPD, we ran into this limitation.  
(We've moved networks with simple configurations first)
This limitation is discussed here:  http://kea.isc.org/ticket/5048#ticket

Our environment has many, many departments that use different subdomains and 
DDNS.  Please make an effort to include this in the software.  We are quite 
pleased with Kea up to this point, and would greatly appreciate the ability to 
specify multiple suffixes for DDNS.

Thank you,

=> in theory a substring(pkt4.mac, 0, 3) does the jobs BTW you can debug 
classification expression (admin guide, 13.9. Debugging Expressions). It should 
explain why it does not work in your example.

=> Unfortunately it is not yet supported (it was recognized as an useful 
feature to add but no milestone was selected for this work and current one 
(1.4) is already fully booked).
