    my old place had star trek ship names, and of course the primary had to be Enterprise! They started moving away from that eventually and moved into firefly and galactica too after a while.

    My current place I haven't renamed the servers yet. Main DC is has a boring name, admin server is adminsvr. I have however, recommissioned an old server to host my AV and a few other bits, and that is now Rivendell.
    I'm thinking the admin server when I rename it will become either Rohan or Isengard. The main DC i shall not be able to rebuild until I get the goahead to rebuild the whole network from scratch with server 2008 R2, which hopefully will be next summer. If so, I shall probably name it Gondor.
    Future servers will of course be Hobbiton, Bree, Mirkwood, Moria, Edoras, Lothlorien, Bywater, Tookborough, Dale, and if i run out, Fornost, Mordor, Angmar and Osgiliath!

    My manager couldn't understand the fun names. We had servers named under planets (saturn, mars, jupiter) before we did a server refresh 4 years ago. I'm now limited to doing sensible names in relation to what the server does.

    Oh well. At least I can gain amusement from your suggestions .

    Tell him/her it’s a potential security vulnerability to have servers named after what they do!

    Still like my Spiceworks server name - Dune

    simple solution, SRV-EXCHANGE runs anti virus, SRV-DC runs exchange and SRV-AV is a domain controller

    unfortunately for exposing my secrets you'll need to be taken outside and shot. it's a shame, i was beginning to like you, but it's just too much of a risk you trying to authenticate against SRV-DC

    Wouldn't be able to name them fun names where i work, people i work with are bad enough for forgetting where things are or what things are called so we just go by what the server does to make it easier on their frail old minds:
    FS1
    ABLOCK_DC
    Terminalserv01
    and so on..

    Only fun name we do have is casper - used to be the ghost server but now it's windows deployment services

    Our servers are a little bit like that. We once had a test server called 'Shibby', I think that ran some sort of Edexcel thing!
