Use hardware address in name generation for DDNS update requests
name: kea-dhcp4 Name Generation for DDNS Update Requests about: Use hardware address (or something else) instead of ip address
Some initial questions
- Are you sure your feature is not already implemented in the latest Kea version? Yes
- Are you sure what you would like to do is not possible using some other mechanisms? Maybe with hooks?
- Have you discussed your idea on kea-users or kea-dev mailing lists? No
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. The automatic generation of a name for the DDNS update request is: [generated-prefix]-[address-text].[qualifying-suffix]. I need a name because I don't know the IP address, but this auto generated name contains the IP address... I need to manage some equipments that don't request the hostname or don't have it set.
Describe the solution you'd like A solution can be to mangle the hw address instead of the IP address, or the possibility to choose. An example: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff -> aa-bb-cc-dd-ee-ff
Describe alternatives you've considered Write an hook...

Participating in development Are you willing to participate in the feature development? ISC team always tries to make a feature as generic as possible, so it can be used in wide variety of situations. That means the proposed solution may be a bit different that you initially thought. Are you willing to take part in the design discussions? Are you willing to test an unreleased engineering code? Yes
Contacting you How can ISC reach you to discuss this matter further? If you do not specify any means such as e-mail, jabber id or a telephone, we may send you a message on github with questions when we have them.
