reverse pointer for vCenter without DNS

No DNS and trying to deploy a vCenter appliance with a reverse lookup requirement.

Anyone know how to create a reverse lookup without DNS to sorta trick the vCenter appliance to install? I believe the requirement is on the vCenter side and not the windows machine I'm using for the upgrade but if that's the case, I'd need a reverse for windows. I don't think I can do this with the hosts file but I don't know.

Thanks in advance
