Perform checks when creating host definitions
"security made simple" is a vital aspect of network security and in keeping with that model I suggest the following checks while creating host definitions:
- When creating a host with an assigned IP, the system should check if that IP is already assigned or not. In a large scale network even though you can search and sort host definitions, it is prone to human error and therefore proper rudemantory checks by the system during creation should be performed.
1.1 one should not be able to create a host with an IP within a dynamic range
1.2 one should not be able to create a host with an IP matching an existing static mapping

These should be fairly easy to do.
