The lazy administrator's tool to manage hostnames
Creates or deletes hosnames on Mitel's SME servers. This tool is func- tionally equivalent to the 'Hostnames and addresses' option in the server-manager, but can be run from the command line or called from an other script. It allows you, for example, to create a large number of hostnames in a batch process, or delete hostnames on a remote machine via an ssh console.
See /usr/doc/lazy-admin-tools/example.hosts for the format of the input file.
