We use the Maintain project ( from
OSU to do our IP address management, including DNS and DHCP. It handles
dynamic and static assignments, DHCP workgroups, and settings for
individual hosts. I wound up writing custom scripts a few years ago when
we migrated from homegrown manual-entry DNS and DHCP management, but it
was well worth the time and trouble to move from a system that required
pretty close to one full-time person doing hostmaster duty to a highly
distributed environment where over 100 admins get good turnaround time
on DHCP and DNS updates which they can do themselves without having to
know details about syntax and options.
