RFC 1178 and server naming

4 Oct 2011

Whenever I come across servers with names like chpvuat01, I’m reminded of [RFC 1178][1] “Choosing a name for your computer”. Especially when ch stands for crack house, pv stands for paid verbiage, but uat doesn’t stand for user acceptance testing: the box used to be in UAT, was moved to SIT (System Integration Testing), but kept it’s old name because renaming it would be too hard.
