The following code will iterate through all devices and perform a lookup of the IP. If the devices manageIp attribute doesn't match it's A record it will be updated. Set makeChanges = True if the script does what you expect.

  debugIt = True
  makeChanges = False
  for d in dmd.Devices.getSubDevices():
      ipAddr = socket.gethostbyname(d.titleOrId())
      if d.manageIp != ipAddr or debugIt == True:
         print 'Device ID: ' + str(d.titleOrId())
         print 'Device current IP: ' + str(d.manageIp)
         print 'Device new ID: ' + str(ipAddr)
         if makeChanges == True:
            print 'IP to: ' + str(ipAddr)
            print 'IP to: Unchanged'
         print '-'*80
