We're in pretty much the same situation (it should not come as a surprise
that an organization like CMU has multiple independent networks). Our DNS
configuration, zones, and dhcpd.conf are generated automatically every 10

One of these days, we'll find a secret closet full of round tuits, and then
we'll migrate to <http://net.cmu.edu/netreg>
