As part of the Web Central Services Retirement project, the ITS website will be retired. Information about IT services will be replaced by two new sites, IT@UT and UT ServiceNow, and ITS departmental information will be migrated to a new location. All changes will be completed by 7/28/2016.

Naming Conventions

A naming convention for all computers, groups, organizational units (OUs), and group policy objects (GPOs) will be strictly enforced. This is necessary to maintain a unique namespace in the Austin domain, as WINS legacy support requires a flat namespace for interoperability across campus. In addition, a naming convention will simplify administrative tasks. Before you add a computer, group, OU, or GPO to, please read the naming conventions document.
