Private DNS: Range and Host values needed

         Key: MNT-1683
         URL: http://bugs.osuosl.org/browse/MNT-1683
     Project: Maintain
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Database  
    Versions: 3.1    
    Reporter: Kirsten Petersen

We need a field for IP ranges and hosts to allow specifying them as "private" for the purpose of splitting up public/private DNS views.  Being able to set this wholesale on a range would be nice, because we use private IP space, and there is no reason to publish DNS for those hosts to people outside our network. Individual hosts may also need to be set as "private", because they are behind a firewall anyway and inaccessible from outside our network.

As a suggestion, the option could be called "private_dns".

In the build scripts, when building the reverse lookups for dynamic ranges, those with "private_dns" set would then be excluded from the configs for the public dns servers.  Likewise, hosts with "private_dns" set would also be excluded.  

Obviously, there would also need to be a happy check-mark on the host creation and ip range pages for something like "Publish in private dns only".

Note: setting "private_dns" on a static range would have no meaning because Maintain doesn't automatically create reverse lookups for static ranges (obviously), so the option should be grayed out if "static" has been chosen on the range.php page.

This should probably be part of a module, since not everyone is going to be doing split public/private dns views.
