Description of problem:
Since bind already has the LDAP connectivity included it would be great to have LDAP support in dhcp too. This patch (http://www.lunytune.net/isc-ldap.html) seems to be around for some time now and should be well tested.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to use DHCP information from a LDAP tree in combination with the dhcp server.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-11-21 14:55:32 EST
We provide the ISC BIND LDAP support because it is included in the ISC BIND
source contrib/sdb/ldap directory, and many users have requested it .
The ISC BIND SDB support is provided in a separate executable, named_sdb, so
that users who do not need SDB support do not have to run a modified named.

There is no patch for dhcpd LDAP support in the ISC dhcp source contrib/
directory. If there was, we'd consider using it to provide a 'dhcpd_ldap' server.

This is the only request received so far for dhcpd ldap support.

If you'd like to see ldap support shipped in the standard dhcpd server, please
email a request for the inclusion of the LDAP patch in contrib/ to 
dhcp-hackers@isc.org - if it is shipped in the ISC contrib/ directory, we'll
consider shipping a dhcpd_ldap server .
