Script to run on DHCPNAK

I will check that out, looks like it could be handy.
My solution for the time being is to send all syslog messages to a
solarwinds server. That server looks for NAK's and checks for the OUI of
the gear I'm using and passes it off to another script to sleep and process
the reboot command. Then solarwinds discards all messages from the DHCP
server. I will be looking for a server that I can setup standalone as I
don't care for solarwinds much and certainly don't like the fact that it
runs on windows, but it does seem to be a good logging server and there
aren't any licensing fees attached to that(since we already have the Orion
software). Splunk would be a great option if they weren't also so proud
about their software.
Thanks for all the input for those that chimed in!
