We do it with perl and Sybase on Linux, with a web interface (perl) for
customer service people. hardest part was all the sanity checks for stupid
data entry errors ie: adding/delete trailing periods, standardizing MX
values... a small perl script runs every hour with more sanity checks,
then dumps out new text files for named to read.
Side benefit: trusted competent customers (and yes, they do exist)
get certain records and fields available for themselves to
Ours is to integrated into too may other things to be useful by itself,
but the DNS side was a solid weekend of coding: about 20hrs.
but made my life easier and harder (I liked hand editing text files).
