Server naming scheme for your school

  1. It is also worth pointing out a small security issue with giving your servers meaningful names.

    If someone penetrates your network and gets a list of machine names, then it makes it very very easy and quick to know which machines to attach first (i.e. straight to the DC).

  2. Hi Alex: I am really enjoying your blog posts. I just found your site today. Above you talk about the importance of documentation. Do you know of where I could find a template for documenting items such as server names, server applications, server ip’s etc? I sometimes find it difficult in what to include in this documentation. Thanks again for your information on this site. Very useful and practical. Chris.
