I’m in the process of migrating the majority of my home network over to IPv6 and tidy up some of the hostnames (given that DNS will feature heavily in an IPv6 environment).
How do you all name your various client devices, servers, network infrastructure etc…?
Currently I use the following format (loosely): DHH-[String]
D designates a one letter device type. e.g.: S for server, N for network infrastructure, C for client device etc…
HH designates number in hexadecimal which relates to the physical site itself.
[String] is variable in length and is a descriptive name for the device.
e.g.: S5F-NAS1 is a NAS server. C5F-SMG960U-1 is a Samsung Galaxy S9.
