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) :D
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 :rolleyes:
at home my wireless is called DEATHSTAR, all servers are characters, e.g. luke ,yoda, darthvader, cheewie, hansolo, and pc's / laptops are r2d2, xwing, tieighter, my NAS is tatooine with a share of moseisley. . welcome to steal mine
ours are all female names, it does make members of staff look really confused when you say oh dawns just crash!
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.
Oh, "favorite" staff names. there a good one. "Oh one min! just need to RE-BOOT <name>"
What about Disney characters? lol..
Battlestar (fictional spaceship) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
# Columbia (two battlestars bearing this name are known to have existed)
# Vortex (seen on a report given by Dualla to Gaeta during the attack)
# Uned (seen on a report given by Dualla to Gaeta during the attack)
# Erasmus (seen on a report on Adama's desk when searching for a new CAG)
# Night Flight (seen on a report on Adama's desk when searching for a new CAG)
thats what my helpdesk person suggested so hers is now bambi :-) - just going over from simpsons to classic singers - aretha, dionne, otis etc

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
We did have Kryten and Kryten2 but they died a dreadful death (Busy, stressful day) so bad memories!

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