Poweradmin isn't part of powerdns, so you are probably better off asking 
there <https://www.poweradmin.org/mailinglists.html>. I suggest you 
mention what version of poweradmin you are running, and what exactly you 
were doing that triggered the error.

If you are running a current version of poweradmin, I think the test you 
are hitting is here:


You should be able to add some debugging to see exactly what's in 
$hostname_label at that point.  Maybe there is a spurious space or 
something.  The code says you can only have a-z, 0-9, hyphen and slash; 
and by this point it has already been split on dot.

Anyway, poweradmin people should be able to help.
