How do you name your servers
I'm looking to a better way to name my servers, what is the way you name your servers ?

P.S., with all my virtual server it's hard to remeber all them if I use server-01,02,03.....

EServer2007 - Our exchange server running exchange 2007
SServer2008 - Our SQL server running SQL 2008
IServer7 - Our Internet server running IIS7.


So the Server name says what it does and what version is installed on it.

on a security point of view, I would suggest you develop a naming scheme on your own with abbreviation. i.e with a p for production and t or l for test/lab. w for windows and l for linux. including the os version in the name is useful but. Again, I don't know what is the environment, and do not need to know, but you always need to keep security in mind.
