NCC Members Question: Moving to a clustered Linux DNS/DHCP service

NCC Members can ask relevant questions of the wider NCC membership, moderated by NCC. We collate the responses, where appropriate anonymise them, then publish the results on the website for the benefit of the wider Membership. Can you help with this question from a manufacturing company?

"We have about 150 servers, mostly virtualised, across 4 locations, using VMware 4.1. They are split into 80 Windows, 50 Suse Linux and 20 Novell servers . We have about 400 users on either XP or Windows 7. Our primary directory is Novell’s eDirectory and we use Novell’s Identity Manager to keep Microsoft’s Active Directory synchronised.

It has been suggested that a move to a clustered Linux DNS/DHCP service would be the most stable for our business as ‘this is the model that the wider Internet uses’. Comments please."
