Right, hopefully the current payload is useful enough. I can't include
the actual hostname as the resize API that is also changed as a result
of this is not admin only and we don't want to leak hostnames to users.

For now I'm going to stick with 409 unless anyone can point to an
example in n-api of us using 5xx for something similar.

Thanks again,
