Server Names? What next!
We are looking for some new server names but we tend to pick a TV or film and get names out of it.
Star Trek - so we have Voyager, Enterprise, DS9
Star Wars - OB1, R2, D2, 3PO
and my latest personal favorite - Dune (Running Spiceworks)
But with not much going on TV / Film wise we are finding it hard to make a few names up, and we all know a good name makes the server better.
So, What have you got? and i will steal them

Not only is tatooine a good name, but nice to know I'm not the only one who has a few servers at home (only 5 now), But we cant all be like Ric who i do believe has a server farm in multiple racks

I'm boring here, and have a systematic labelling system e.g SA-DC01 = Spires Academy Domain Controller 01 etc. etc.

Not that I use them but Red Dwarf names would be good.

We used to be local place names,
However since we've gone virtual it would get a bit too hard to manage.
There's all serv and then a descriptor. E.g. ServDC1, ServPrinting, ServSims,
A school I used to work at had servers called Daisy & Buttercup.

We have just picked HAL, TRON and Skynet as the main Blade OS name!
Next would be the virtual servers needing names, oh its hard work this networking admin malarkey

What's all this DNS nonsense? There's nothing wrong with using the IPv6 addresses
