comment How to get machines to use a DNS without a fixed IP, which does not appear in the DHCP lease?
@Iain: Where did I say anything about organizational policies? Or about me configuring "their machines"? It seems like you're reading things into my question from your personal experience, and you're closing the question based this scenario you've constructed. I've read the on/off topic description and you're basically accusing me of misusing equipment.

@Iain: With all due respect, you're just trying to force your advice down my throat. I did not ask about doing it the standard and simple way, but about a problem I'm having, seeing how that way is effectively impossible. That does not make it off-topic, merely not to your liking.

I know DHCP only sends information with addresses. I'm thinking of using the protocol to get DHCP leases, with dummy addresses, and only take the DNS server name from the lease. Or, alternatively, to proxy the DHCP request then rewrite one of its field on return.

Can you please rephrase your answer? I'm not quite following. Anyway, mine is an IPv4-only question.

Iain, I appreciate the advice and I am certainly trying it. However, I need something which works now.

These people are in a different country and are effectively inaccessible to me. If I could speak to them I'd just get them to install a DNS server...

@Iain: Indeed, I have no control over the DHCP server.
