Title : Resolution of DNS Name Conflicts Among DHCP Clients

DHCP provides a powerful mechanism for IP host configuration.
However, the configuration capability provided by DHCP does not
include updating DNS(RFC1034, RFC1035), and specifically
updating the name to address and address to name mappings maintained
in the DNS.
The 'Client FQDN Option' specifies the client FQDN option,
through which DHCP clients and servers can exchange information
about client FQDNs. This document describes techniques for the
resolution of DNS name conflicts among DHCP clients.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
