The current DNS configuration support implemented by the configuration system is lacking.
Hostnames cannot be used as subdomains, eg. if there is a host called nvd.crc.net.nz, that must be an A record to the host's loopback IP and there cannot be a subdomain called nvd.crc.net.nz. This could be remedied by moving all hosts/routers into a subdomain such as routers.crc.net.nz.
There is no interface to add and remove entries that are not able to be automatically generated by the configuration system. This is a barrier to using the configuration system to completely manage a network like CRCnet where there are lots of legacy DNS entries that must be preserved.
