Integrating ldap, dns and dhcp


Hi all,

I have been using linux for a while now and I am ready to make the next step. Building and administering servers. Or actually I already have done couple of things.

Currently I am learning to install ldap, dns and dhcp. The book that I am reading mentions that it is possible to integrate ldap and dns. They also say that the dhcp server can register the IP in the dns server, so the client doesn't need to contact the dns server. Now Iwas thinking that I could integrate all 3 services. The only issue that I have now is that they don't tell how to do this. So I started to look on the internet, but wasn't able to find much information on this. Has anyone done this before? Or has anyone a good source of information about this subject? The book is using OpenLDAP, Bind9 and dhcpd.

TIA,
Arjan.

plenty of info about the dhcp / dns side of things... http://www.void.gr/kargig/blog/2006/...th-dhcpd-bind/ for example. i'm not sure what the ldap / bind side will provide you with though. what do you expect to get out of it?

I agree that DHCP and DNS is not the biggest issue. However BIND and OpenLDAP is more difficult. My intention is to use ldap as a backend for BIND. It should be possible. I also have been looking at PowerDNS, which supports ldap as a backend. But it is not clear to me that PowerDNS supports the integration of a DHCP server.

I might have found something... Fedora includes a package that adds bind-sdb to the BIND. This should be a plug-in to use ldap as a backend. I am going to try if this works. I came across this before, but the original project seems to be pretty old and the website of the guy who is maintaining now, doesn't work.

Arjan.
