Re: Network Naming Scheme At home: descriptor for system combined with name of whomever uses the system most. XPS_Psafux for one of my laptops for example. I also have network address reservation configured on my router. Makes it easy when I dig through network logs.
At work: each device is given a unique 7 digit computer name. 250,000 devices are a little different to keep track of than 12 though.
