With DNS you don't have to change both your client access names, and your
local hosts file.  I am quite adamant against using a local hosts table.
We've changed the IP addresses of all of our 400's over the years.

Sorry for the late response, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing
something. How would it help to have it served via DNS? If the hostname
changes, the Client Access settings still need to be changed at the client.
No?
