-====== What is the name of my computer? ======+<wrap info>​[[:​datornamn|Denna sida på svenska]]</​wrap>​
  
-{{  :​datornamn-0.jpg?​300|}} Sooner or later you will find yourself in the situation where you are trying to find out what your computer is named. Examples of such situations are when you are trying to connect with [[Remote Desktop]] from home or when calling [[Helpdesk]].+====== Computer Name ======
  
-A computers name is made up by a number found on the //security marker//. The computer ​is always marked with a special security marker as shown in the picture to the right. The exact location might vary but the marker should be clearly visible.+===== What is the name of my computer? =====
  
-The marker contains ''​LU''​ followed by a six digit number. **These digits are used as the computername but instead ​of ''​LU''​ the characters ​are changed ​to ''​klth''​**.+ ​Sooner or later you will find yourself in the situation where you are trying to find out what your computer is named. Examples ​of such situations are when you are trying ​to connect with [[Remote Desktop]] from home or when calling [[LTH Support]].
  
-In the lower picture to the right you can see a typical security marker with ''​LU142263''​ which gives us a computername of ''​klth142263''​.+==== The easy way ==== 
 +  - Open an Explorer window (Hold down the windows-key and hit the E-key) 
 +  - Right-click "This PC" and select "​Properties"​ 
 +  - You are now presented with a window where you can find your computers name.
  
-When connecting to your computer using [[Remote Desktop]] you need to enter //the full name// of your computer which is more then just the computername. To build a full name you use the computername and add ''​.kansli.lth.se''​ to the end. The full computername from the picture on the right should look like ''​klth142263.kansli.lth.se''​. 
  
-The other digits (''​202100 3211''​) ​are Lunds universitets organisationalnumber. It is also a part of the security marker ​but is not used as the computers ​name.+==== More info ==== 
 + 
 + 
 +{{:​datornamn-0.jpg?​300 ​ }}A computer name is typically made up by a number found on the //security marker//. The computer is always marked with a special security marker on a theft protection label as shown in the pictures. The exact location might vary but the label should always be clearly visible. 
 + 
 +{{  :​datornamn-1.jpg?​300|}} The marker contains ''​LU''​ followed by a six digit number. The six digit number is typically used in the computer name. 
 + 
 +When connecting to your computer using [[Remote Desktop]] you need to enter the //full name// of your computer which is more than just the computer name. To get the full name, you use the computer name directly followed by a suffix. 
 + 
 +<WRAP clear></​WRAP>​ 
 + 
 +<WRAP tip> 
 +The other digits ​found on the security label (''​202100 3211''​) ​is the organisational number of Lund University. It is always present on all security markers, but it is unrelated to the computer name. 
 +</​WRAP>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +==== LTH Faculty Office ==== 
 + 
 +**At the [[kansli|LTH Faculty Office]], the computer name consists ​of the prefix ''​klth'',​ immediately followed by the six digits.**. If the six digits in the security marker ​are ''​123456'',​ the computer name would be: <​code>​klth123456</​code>​ The full name of the computer, which should be used with [[Remote Desktop]], is the computer name followed by the suffix ''​.kansli.lth.se''​. In this example, the full name would thus be: <​code>​klth123456.kansli.lth.se</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +==== Faculty of Science Faculty Office ==== 
 + 
 +**At the [[kanslin|Faculty of Science Faculty Office]], the computer name consists of the prefix ''​kn'',​ immediately followed by the six digits.**. If the six digits in the security marker are ''​123456'',​ the computer name would be: <​code>​kn123456</​code>​ The full name of the computer, which should be used with [[Remote Desktop]], is the computer name followed by the suffix ''​.kanslimn.lu.se''​. In this example, the full name would thus be: <​code>​kn123456.kanslimn.lu.se</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +==== EIT ==== 
 + 
 +**At [[EIT]], the computer name is always clearly marked on a separate label on the computer**, and the security marker number ​is not used. The full name of the computer, which should be used with [[Remote Desktop]], is the computer ​name followed by the suffix ''​.eit.lth.se''​. If the computer name is ''​COMPUTERNAME'',​ the full name would thus be: <​code>​computername.eit.lth.se</​code>​
