Hi Mark,

I think what you’re saying is that you want your system’s name to be set from the DHCP server. Is that correct?

Check if /etc/hostname  is present and has some value. If so… 
cp /etc/hostname /etc/hostname-`date -I` && rm /etc/hostname

Restart networking/reboot and see if that works for you.
