[07/29/2020 @15:27]: Re: Naming Computers


Now that I've gotten to a point where the TODO list for Gemini stuff is pretty short I've started strolling through the GUS known_hosts list and CAPCOM. I came across dctrud's[1] question on naming computers so I figured I'd weigh in.



[1]



Over the 25 or so years I have had to name computers I have developed a general pattern that works for me. Generic stuff boils down to a pretty standard format of [thing]##.[site-name].example.com. The ## always starts at 01 and resets per-site. I have a handful of 'things' with specific purposes.



bdr - Network Router


cntr - Container Server


ns - Name Services Server


printer - Printer / Print Server


sw - Network Switch


wap - Wireless Access Point


virt - VM Server



Once we get out of the 'thing' categories I get a little more whimsical. I started with Roman / Greek mythology:



Andromeda (a Laptop - gone)


Hermes (a Laptop - gone)


Apollo (a Server, now a VM)



I then moved into Tolkien.



Imladris (a Server, now a VM)


Bree (a VM)


Hobbiton (a Server - gone)



I took a detour briefly through video game characters, settling for a long time on Ghost in the Shell anime characters.



Aramaki (a Laptop - gone)


Ishikawa (a Laptop - gone)


Motoko (current Windows 10 Gaming PC)



And now most recently I've settled on random Japanese animal words.



Kitsune (current Laptop)


Tanuki (current non-gaming desktop)



There is a pretty complete list of systems, what they run and what they do over on my web site.

And now that I've typed all of this, I'm a teensy bit embarrassed. 😳
