I have couple of linux servers that I to assign static IPs to because I'm doing some CARPing and Vlans.
The way my DNS server is set, it gets the hostnames dynamically from the nodes, as soon as there is a new node on the network.
This approach only works unfortunately for servers with dhcp clients. To send hostname, you edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf file with hostnames, and restart dhclient.
Anyone knows of a way to do this with servers with static ip's?
