Workstations operating on the Bradley County Schools are to be named according to the following scheme:
SS-RR-XNN, SS-FLLL-XNN, or SS-FLLL-XNN
Two character site code (from the table on the next page)
Room number (Minimum two digit room number…01, 02, 03). If a room number is not appropriate, a department abbreviation could be used (AD = Administrative office, AO = Attendance Office, CT = Career Tech, GO = Guidance Office, FS = Food Service, GYM = GYM, FA = Fine Arts, MC = Media Center/Library…etc)
T = Teacher, S = Student, L = Lab, LT = Laptop, C = Computer, TB = Tablet (S and C have been used interchangeably in the past. Maybe let’s all decide on one?)
Two digit sequence number of the computer in the room (01, 02, 03,…etc)
This is for a laptop assigned to a person. Always use First initial of first name, and first three of Last name. (Scott Humberd is SHUM, Ruth Ann White is RWHI, Yvonne Chastain is YCHA) As ridiculous as it looks at times, keeping them short and sortable is the key.
Reimaging and naming in advance can lead to inconsistent. A number may be added to the end in this event as to not impact the current, in use computer. The PC may be renamed later or kept as is. So BC-AD-GGER-LT becomes BC-AD-GGER-LT01, then his next refresh can roll back to BC-AD-GGER.
Workstation names must not exceed fifteen characters and must consist of alphanumeric characters and hyphens (underscores can cause issues with DNS).
