In todays partitioned and virtualized computing environments, the requirement for naming standards is more apparent than ever before. Unfortunately there is a wide spread lack of understanding between the different categories of names used to identify managed systems, LPARs, profiles, node names, host names, and aliases. This article defines naming categories and provide standards for creating enterprise wide unique names associated with each category. This article also explains why it is important to distinguish between the different naming categories and how they are an integral part of data center automation projects and an overall business continuity plan.
