#7936 reverse IP zone incorrectly fails reverse ip overlap check
Opened 3 months ago by hcoin. Modified 3 months ago


IP v4 address block is a private, non-routable address range. Adding any address within that range should pass the overlap checks. However, attempting to add such causes a complaint about overlap then a command failure.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Using the gui, surf to dns zones.
  2. Choose 'Reverse zone IP network'.
  3. Attempt to add any subnet within (or the whole thing). Do no click 'skip overlap check'.

Actual behavior

Notice the error message. Command failure.

Expected behavior

There should be no conflicts with arin addresses reported when creating reverse ip zones for any RFC1918 subnet.
