What tools are available for allocating and tracking which addresses are being used? Specifically, our issue is that sometimes an IP is taken for a VM and when we go to build new ones they're not necessarily up for the quick 'n dirty "ping test".
Right now there's a Google Spreadsheet, but inevitably we forget to update it.
It has to be shared and easy to update.
Should I just bite the bullet and go with a DHCP server?
