We use Windows based DNS servers to support entries to our IBM i
partitions, and all sorts of non Windows equipment.
When we do a switch from our system at xx.10.xx.xx to our system at
xx.27.xx.xx we have API's on our IBM i automatically update that DNS to
change the entry. If any user is stupid enough to create a host table
entry for the systems then it stinks to be them.
We did have some software vendors who had stupid instructions like do
CFGTCP, and look at the interface entries and have your client point to
that IP address. It did not end well for them.

If they have Active Directory or any other such thing then it's worth
setting up an internal DNS.

Dunno much about Windows, but I for sure know from my colleagues that AD
*requires* a DNS to be run on the AD servers. It's automatic, so to say.
And thus you can easily "abuse" that DNS for entries not belonging to the
MS universe.

I despise Bing. So I had a host table entry on my laptop to route any
Bing stuff to Google.

Interesting. I despise both of them almost equally. This is common here in
GErmany, because both of them eventually try to make a fortune by
monetizing your (personal) data, giving a s*it about data protection.
They're in good company with Facebook, Twitter, and others, though. Did you
notice that "don't be evil" has been devaluated by Google as a goal around
5 years ago?
