But because the original poster stated that the hostname is being changed,
then every client must also be updated anyway to request the IP address of
the new hostname, regardless of DNS.

Tom:

I may be wrong, but I think Doug said he could change the Hostname in the
workstation file on the PC, he just wanted to know where the hostname to ip
addr translation was.  That would either be the HOST file on the PC or the
DNS server.  The HOST file will override the DNS server if you can't get to
the DNS.  I have seen several people have a login script replace the HOST
file for a conversion and replace it again (use the default) when they're
finished.

You are right that each client would have to be touched, but only once with
DNS.
