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 austin.utexas.edu, please read the austin.utexas.edu naming conventions document.
