The fact that CA/400 uses DNS when available is not a fluke to CA400 but a 
feature of TCP/IP networks setup using DNS.  When doing an initial eval, you 
would have caught the problem, had your network folks (or who ever) add your 
/400 entry into DNS and your done.  Now, when you go to the desktops, you 
should have in your install script to check to verify you can ping 
youras400.domain.com and if it fails, your user needs to be setup using DNS.

Your have describe the problem!

The DNS resolution is performed "During Configuration". Then a hard coded IP
address is placed into the CA/400 configuration instead of a system name.

If the host system's IP address changes I still have to revisit each PC and
"reconfigure CA/400". 

Why can't CA/400 store a "system name" instead of an IP address in it's
configuration and then resolve the IP address during the connection attempt?

If it did this then it wouldn't matter if the host system's IP address was
changed or not,  CA/400 would still be able to find the system via DNS....
