Oh, they got an address, but it was excluded from DNS and NIS, and
IIRC had other access controls at the router/switch level, so they
could basically only access the internet.  They complained rather
loudly.  (Even without access limitations at the network level, if the
system wasn't in DNS/NIS, lots of stuff broke for them.  For example,
NFS mount requests would be refused...)
