ldap2dns is a program to read DNS (Domain Name Service) records from an LDAP directory and format them into flat files suitable for TinyDNS (or Bind). ldap2dns reduces all kinds of administration overhead: no more flat file editing, no more zone file editing. After having installed ldap2dns, the administrator only has to modify the data stored in the LDAP directory. Access control can be configured for each zone, GUIs can be more easily implemented, and all other kinds of zone and resource record information can be managed without interfering with the DNS server directly.

slapi-dnsnotify is a plugin for OpenLDAP or other LDAP servers. It watches for changes in the serial number of a DNS zone stored in the LDAP server, and notifies DNS slave servers to refresh their copy of the zone. It can also increment the serial number of a zone whenever changes in that zone are made.
Roster is DNS management software for use with Bind 9. It is licensed under the BSD license. It is written in Python, and uses a MySQL database with an XML-RPC front-end. It contains a set of command line user tools that connect to the XML-RPC front-end. The config files for BIND are generated from the MySQL database, so a live MySQL database is not needed. The software has four basic components. The core includes the database interface and core API, and contains the authorization layer. The server is an SSL enabled multi-threaded XML-RPC server. It also contains the LDAP authentication layer. The config manger creates BIND config files using the core API, and handles pushing the files to their appropriate servers. The user tools contain over 20 tools to create, list, and remove records, zones, views, DNS servers, DNS server sets, groups, users, and the assignments between them all. There is currently support for views, many DNS servers in many configurations, IPv6, user/group authorization, LDAP authentication, and Unicode hosts.
