We just received our first ARIN allocation and I'm going through the
motions to make sure we do everything right. Aside from dealing with
DNS, BGP, and rwhois (which is a nightmare to set up), it was highly
recommended that we register with an IRR. After looking a bit, I'm
wondering which IRR I should be registering with ...
It looks like ARIN has an IRR, but it's not something I can register
with. The 2 specifically mentioned were raddb and altdb ... altdb
obviously looks good because it's free...
So .. is there a recommended registry to register with? Is it better
to register with more than one? Am I staring a religious argument in
the face here?
Also, as an aside, does anyone have a checklist of sorts describing
"best practices" for new allocations? Maybe something describing all
the steps taken after a new allocation is assigned?
