    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We use planets for our server naming;

    e.g.... Sun, Earth, Mars, Moon, Jupiter

    I wanted to use Disney Characters, but my boss didn't like that idea...

    Personally I dont like the idea of ServerXX...

    I went for something even more boring:

    xxadmin and xxstudent

    Keeps the servers at the top of sorted lists.

    With computers - ROOMPCXX

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We have a parent-child domain so we have

    MHS-DC
    PUPIL-DC
    FILE-SERVER
    MHS-PROXY
    MHS-INTRANET

    then xx-xx for the room PCs (roomno-pcno = 12-02, 12-03, etc)

    But think i might change the naming scheme over the summer - as may need to rebuild the servers anyway

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We have boring names for our servers:

    dc-1-sfa
    dc-2-sfa
    dc-3-sfa
    inetsrv
    msexchange
    contentcache
    WWW - debian web server (not configured in house so dont blame us for the name!)
    sv-2-sfa (running on a desktop PC and soon to be decomissioned)
    ICTMUSICSERVER (plays muzak over the stereo system in the ICT dept )

    DONT name your exchange server to what i named ours!!! This because you'll realise exactly what you've done 3 weeks later when the head of ICT questions the naming convention of mmmmm sexchange and starts giving you funny looks in the corridoor!


    My own machines follow a boring naming convention aswell

    lt-joedetic - for my laptop
    joedetic-desktop - for my desktop

    But my one server is called Jeeves and the mail server that was due to accompany it was called wooster, but i ran out of space so it became my desktop PC.

    My development server is called Nixon. It runs ubuntu linux so i thought it'd be a fitting name.

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We're very boring here... servers are named as to what they do (not my idea, I was going to go for the Famous Five and Timmy the Dog as we have 6 servers in all)

    However the units collectively in their nice HP cabinet are known as Bertha (which always makes me hum the theme tune)

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We've got ours named after fruits. APPLE, ORANGE, PEACH, BANANA, KIWI, PLUM, PINEAPPLE, LEMON etc.. etc...

    In fact we're looking for a name for our new Exchange server in the summer, any ideas?

    I think you should reserve "lemon" for your Exchange server, quite an accurate description I think

    I'd agree, except the state of our ISA box, LEMON is far better used for that!
