Managing Your DNS and DHCP with Maintain

Thursday, January 1, 2004

Abstract

For years, Oregon State University (OSU) had managed Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) tables with a set of command-line scripts developed by the campus network engineering group. The scripts worked well but required a certain level of understanding to use them. In 2000, a decision was made to change the institutional domain name from orst.edu to oregonstate.edu. With this significant operational change, it was determined that the DNS/DHCP table management tool in place at the time was not sufficiently scalable to support necessary retrofit requirements, and the decision was made to replace it with an in-house developed Web-based application.
