Re: New SAN - remapping volumes - naming scheme

Small today, big tomorrow!

I always have a tendency to think long term and when I started out many ages ago, I'd always debated with people that their 'clever' naming scheme loses out to my simple naming scheme (ie. their AD001NY, AD002NY, AD001NJ vs. my SERVER001, SERVER002) but as I gained more experience I realized that it's easier to sort a spreadsheet when you start with a number (unless you're a crazy man using hex).

Sometimes, if possible, we try to tie asset tags with IP addresses if possible.
