ISC dhcpd has native support to read and store ALL dhcp attibutes you

normally have in flat files to store and retrieve in ldap.

What does this mean?

We, the "Arktur 4 developer" have build a solution where the teacher pc

have a gui to control all dhcp staff in ldap. One click to terminate a 
student pc's

internet access. One click to isolate a class room from all other 
networks in case

you will write an exam.

I have no clue how to do this with AD, but it should work, if you use 
samba AD

with bind dlz.
