I run the network for a foundry. Most of it is configured with static IPs, no DNS, and the hosts they talk to hard-coded in proprietary software. On top of it, half is inside a ISO class I cleanroom and runs 24/7/365.
It's a common situation with large infrastructures that are 20 or 30 years old. In the same room, I have 30 different gases and 30 different operating systems. Even if I wanted, I could not renumber.
