I don't want to believe what a client tells me.  We don't in v4 and I want the same policy in v6.

In dhcpd.conf I have

ddns-domainname                   "massey.ac.nz.";
ddns-update-style                 interim;
option fqdn.no-client-update      true;
option fqdn.server-update         true;

The in the hosts file I have

   host it044042-vista {
      ddns-hostname "it044042-vista";
      option host-name "it044042-vista";
      host-identifier option dhcp6.client-id 00:01:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:0c:29:f4:14:1b;
