So, you indirectly suggest to use Bind9 + DHCP3 with TSIG secure
updates, that was my original idea.

Doing so, I will grant updates for any RR, including SRV updates, A
and PTR inserts and deletes.

In an Active Directory context, in your experience, what are the
remaining steps which I will have to complete manually? Only
underscore subdomains creations needs manual job?

Does those Web GUIs supports such operations?

Googling, I found mysqlBind, GAdminTools (GTK+, not Web) and WebBind.
Which one is the better, in your opinion?

Someone know any others GUI for BIND, stable and complete?

Thank you a lot, again.
