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.
Asterisk::LDAP is a perl module for generating Asterisk 1.0 compatible configuration files from an LDAP directory tree. The package includes everything you need to get started, including the module itself, schema files, and example code. Functionality is provided to see if a reload is necessary and optionally send asterisk a 'reload' command when updates are made. Included is a script that can be called from voicemail.conf's externpass option to update a user's voice mailbox PIN number in LDAP. Asterisk::LDAP is currently capable of generating extensions.conf, voicemail.conf, and musiconhold.conf. Support is planned for sip.conf, iax.conf, and meetme.conf.
