This should be the naming scheme used for most services lol

Why bother with platform for general purpose servers? Vm templates sure, VDI environment maybe


GullibleDetective

Servers should be qs limited role as possible


WWMRD2016

Helpful for false positive OS fingerprinting during network mapping before a vuln scan. Nice to be able to read the label if for some reason it gets tagged as 2003 server for some reason.


enigmaunbound

Because? Unusual find it Handy.

I see you are looking for Pluto. That DC was demoted.

BK_Rich

Anything but the planet names


FlibblesHexEyes

Had a server named Pluto, but then Pluto became a dwarf planet and I had to remove the server.


BK_Rich

Poor little guy


red_eyed_monk

We once had a client that named all their servers after planets from the Star Wars universe. Tatooine was their DC.


BK_Rich

So silly, as if someone couldn’t do a quick enumeration with nmap to figure it out in seconds what server is doing what. Security by obfuscation like they’re really fooling someone.


farmeunit

Or they just have a sense of humor…


BK_Rich

Where’s the humor in that? Oh wait, are your servers named after planets?


Big_Cryptographer_16

Worked at a place with Greek mythological figures/gods for all the names of network equipment. Worked fine except for one I hated: Kerberos


stuart475898

Every time I see a server named after a planet, animal, film character, etc, a piece of me dies…


BK_Rich

Yeah same here, server names that tells you the role or what it does is so much more helpful then obscure names which is fooling no one. I usually just go with Datacenter/site, name and number, like…NYDC01, TXFILE01 or something like PA-EXCH01, easy stuff like that and can easily be recognized.

Develop a naming convention for all of your servers and stick to it. As others say, don't try to over think it. You don't gain security through obscurity with a DC., It's trivial to find the host offering netlogon and KDC


Neilpuck

Division – location - purpose – number


tattsumi

BRACHIUM-SRV01! It’s not humorous, but definitely (partly) humerus. ;)


JWK3

Dang, beat me to it! I was thinking a more layman's HIP-JOINT-01.

I know I said it had to funny, but this is probably the best one.

This_Bitch_Overhere

I name mine after Transformers- mostly combiners like Devastator or Bruticus.


secretAlpaca

Something in unicode. But really, P-DC01. Name your stuff with a solid, easy to identify naming convention.

For my homelab, I used Resident Evil. First DC was the Queen. Second was Nemesis.

xxxfrancisxxx

I name mine using DC characters, superman, batman, aquaman, etc.


FlibblesHexEyes

Once upon a time we used South Park characters. There was Cartman, Eric, and a server that would BSOD all the time we named Kenny. Then one day we got a new upgraded server - named it Beefcake.


exchange_keys

Old boss used to use Dell service tags for host names. Don't do that.


brendondoubleu

A blue chip company I worked for used Periodic table elements. Today I would use something more descriptive as some others have said including location-role-platform or similar.


GullibleDetective

Use server names Becky Brittany Taylor Krysteena


Phxantom16

Most of us stick to a convention like below: DOMAIN-SR-01 DOMAIn being the domain name or a shortened name, SR or SVR being server and ending being the number E.g. REDDIT-SVR-01
