I can think about one more option different from the one outlined by

- powerdns driven by the ldap backend that connects to OpenLDAP
- OpenLDAP that connects to the mssql server

Connectivity between OpenLDAP & MSSQL can be achieved by using
www.unixodbc.org in conjunction with www.freetds.org

See http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/978.html for some more
information on this.

We have never used FreeTDS in connection with OpenLDAP but we are using
it for a couple of other projects and are very happy with it.

BTW, is there a "real" reason why the ODBC backend for PowerDNS is only
available on windows platforms?

Just my 2ยข on this issue :-)
