Could you please add an configurable option to overwrite the hostname present in dynamic DNS (reject new one or replace previous one) when new machine goes up , with the same hostname as previous one ? For example when virtual machine is recreated with the same hostname is not accessible until previous lease is expired.

The user is asking for a feature to turn on/off conflict resolution, similar to this parameter in ISC DHCP:

          The update-conflict-detection statement

            update-conflict-detection flag;

            If the update-conflict-detection parameter is true, the server will  per-
            form standard DHCID multiple-client, one-name conflict detection.  If the
            parameter has been set false, the server will skip this check and instead
            simply tear down any previous bindings to install the new binding without
            question.  The default is true.
