I've asked myself...

today 'How much trouble would I get in for naming all the windows
servers after demons and all the Linux servers after angels?'

The primary windows domain controller will be named Lucifer.

Re: I've asked myself...

Most people probably wouldn't realize whose names you named the servers
after, unless it's the network for the Dominican Order or other such
organization, in which case you might find yourself facing the Spanish
Inquisition, from which you can *never* hide... 😉

Most wouldn't see the server names.

Of course Azrael (Angel of Death) would be an interesting server name
for a 'Terminal' server. 😛

As would Gabriel the Archangel, the patron saint of the U.S. Army's
SOCOM. 😉

Oh! Can I come work with you? Not allowed to use that name here. Course,
with the way things are going "here" may change sooner than I think.

Maybe you could get away with naming it LouCypher, like Robert DeNiro's
character in "Angelheart"?

Re: I've asked myself...

I wonder if any servers in SLC are named Nephi, Ether, or Moroni?

Re: I've asked myself...

LOL! I've always believed that Ethernet was named after Ether, from the
Book of Mormon, and had nothing to do with "aether" the Greek word,
since it had more to do with spreading information through a physical
bound medium, not a wireless medium, than being a pervasive gaseous matter.

Don't forget to name one of your DCs PontiusPilot for his horrible acts of judgement.
