This might be the end-all to having people use hard coded IP addresses for their IBM i servers!! This way, IBM i's IP address will change, not often, but it WILL change at some point. Those using DNS won't know, or care. Those using a fixed IP address won't know either, BUT they will eventually care as they will be stuck!!

Must ponder.

change the entry.

Just curious: did you investigate using DNS dynamic update in conjunction with setting up IBM i IP address as provided by a DHCP server?
