Computer Naming Conventions best practices RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Dear All,

    Computer naming conventions is always an issue. We are recently using naming convetion like this.

    Location+Department+section+employed+device descriptions

    Location two characters

    Department Two characters

    Section two Characters

    Employ ID Four Characters

    Device Descriptions one Characters

    sample name should be like this

    HOFNAC0762D (USER IS IN THE HEAD OFFICE IN FINANCE DEPARTMENT ACCOUNTS SECTION EMPLY ID IS 762 AND USING DESKTOP)

    But now we have two locations in head office how can we add the location here.

    Any can advise better naming conventions that will be unique for every computer even until the end of life.

  • I'm surprised more people haven't given suggestions here.

    So you're saying that there is a new "location" that is in the same physical office as another?  Would it be a problem just to give it another location title, not worrying about the fact that they're in the same facility?
