Systems Management Question
Is there an intuitive way to change the name of a device to a more common name. KACE currently picks up on the Windows computer name and uses it in the 'Name' field for the device. However, our naming schema uses an acronym-serial number for the device name, which makes it difficult to decipher what the device is. Is there a way to change the 'Name' field? Any best practices to make this more managable? I am currently using manual labels, but that is just for departmental organization.

Use the description field for windows to set your departments with. I have a bunch of kscripts that staff uses to assign departments with. The scripts run daily. They work like your manual labels. I run a weekly report for machines that do not have the description field set to our standard convention.
