    Server names

    During the summer, along with the other work we have to do, we are planning to rename all our servers to something a little more uniform. In total, to allow for any future expansion we are looking for 20 names.

    Just wondering what everyone is using for their names at the moment, and if anyone has suggestions. At the moment we are considering characters from the film Aliens, so...Apone, Hicks, Hudson, Ripley, Bishop etc etc.

    I like the Discworld idea, but sadly I am the only one here who reads Discworld and would know the names. Yeah I know !! The other techs dont read Pratchett...blasphemy I tell you !

    Start with something subtle Jake, label up your server room with a 'The Dungeon Dimensions' Plaque.

    Hehe, I must admit, the temptation to have a server called BloodyStupidJohnson is pretty strong

    yeah, Vasquez would be our newest and sexiest server, Burke would be our ISA server that watches communication traffic, then falls over when the going gets rough and Hicks would be our NAS server, which sits around looking good but doesnt really do all that much

    Re: Server names

    We have Byron, Shakespeare, Orwell etc.

    Makes me feel interlectual except when we come to name a new one and can only think of "Grisham" or "King"

    Re: Server names

    God I'm boring then.

    serverXX for file servers and DC's
    wserverXX for web servers
    eserverXX for online testing servers
    tserverXX for test servers
    vserverXX for servers running virtual machines

    Re: Server names

    or CutMyOwnThroat Dibbler!

    the data server would be called 'the Librarian (ook)
    and the archive server - 'Death'
    I think I woud call my main server Rincewind.

    All pie in the sky, as apart from the odd caching server I only have one in each school!
