    Hi

    I'm currently evaluating the deployment of Plesk for a large corporate Intranet.

    We have many internal intranet web services which are being consolidated onto a single "production web services hosting platform" In order to facilitate "self service", I have been evaluating the deployment of Plesk Panel.

    My question relates to DNS. We are using Infoblox dns and I need to configure my Plesk to register new CNAME's with our Infoblox dns. I can create/delete cname records from the command line but I don't know how to configure Plesk to register new cnames into the companies DNS...rather then within Plesk's dns.

    Any ideas how I could script the creation/deletion of DNS records?

    Is there a special version of Plesk for Corporate Intranets?

    Thanks
    Bruce

    further to this

    I forget to mention configuring Plesk to allow "authentication against our AD servers"

    Presumably, deploy Plesk onto a corporate intranet requires two things:

    1. New FQDNS (domain stays the same, just a new hostname) to be registered with existing DNS server....say using nsupdate or in my case, a script to submit a soap request to the Infoblox API

    2. Configuring Plesk to authenticate users against the companies AD, either directly of via a product such a Likewise

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Bruce
