Why do you feel the computers must have a fixed ipaddress ?

But if you must give them a fixed ipaddress, you may be able to do this
with a variation on this:


That just updates a computers records in AD after a lease is granted,
but I think you should be able to use this as a basis to do what you

Your script would have to check that /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf doesn't
already contain the computers MAC and if not add something like this:

host <shorthostname of client> {
           next-server dc.your-domain.com;
           hardware ethernet 00:02:c3:d0:e5:83; < MAC address of client
           fixed-address; < IP you require

It will probably be a bit more complex than this and I say it 'may'
work, because I have never tried it.
