This is the standard University IP address management system

The link is;  https://rincewind.auckland.ac.nz/

Quick Search and Create a new entry are the main areas of activity for IT Support

 

To Find out which IP to assign

Do a Quick Search of a subnet – eg. enter 130.216.170.

Note there are 2 listed without a mac address, do not use a printer address…modify  “jbri002” (change the naming convention while your at it)

PC Naming convention should be – sc-cs-311587  or sc-mat-311587 (3 characters after “sc” should define the dept. – 311587 is the asset tag)

Full Rincewind name should be – sc-mat-311587.math.auckland.ac.nz

If there is not one available, create one (find a the next sequential IP number not listed in the range)
