Problem with that method is, the user would have to get a failure first 
and then find out how to fix it, how about something along these lines:


             if ctx.dns_backend != "NONE":

With something like this:

             if ctx.dns_backend != "NONE":
                     print("Cannot add Computers dns records, you will have"
                           " to do this manually.")
