Bug Description

Horizon Juno does not have hostname validation in instance creation form. For example, you can create a new instance with name: "#3rtttt"

That name will cause problems when Nova try to handle, but Horizon allow launch a new instance with a not valid hostname. A valid hostname is specified in RFC1123 (

I propose add hostname validation to create/edit instance form following the RFC1123.

This is wrong way of doing work. You cannot remove as assignee like.. If I have assigned myself, it means that I am doing to fix that.
If you have fix, at least you can tell here that you have got a fix and you are going to submit.

Ritesh, I guess all of us (open source community) can participate and collaborate in this patch, no problem for me if you want modify the patch and/or finish it ;)

I was thinking about activate/deactivate this validation through via settings parameter... Any comments?
