Re: [Samba] SAMBA4 API




Rowland -

The fog server is an imaging server, and had 90% of the information we
wanted to track by virtue of the end user machines being registered with
it, which is why we are using it as the base for our inventory server.
We simply added on a couple of tables to add the ability to store some
information that FOG didn't natively store.  The inventory is going to
store WAY more than just our end user machines.  It will store information
on all our network devices (printers, APs, routers, firewalls, etc etc) as
well as servers which aren't registered with FOG, which is why it is
important to have the inventory page be able to interface with the SAMBA4
DNS server.

You have answered my question.

I asked "Is there an API to allow me to modify DNS records from a server
external to the DC"

you replied "not to my knowledge"

We're good :D  Thanks for your help!
