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 question on naming computers so I figured I'd weigh in.
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. 😳
