If your device is supported then the local machine name will comprise of your department’s name, “pc” and then a number, for example CSCSPC03. It may use the equipment service tag information, for example CSCS-AB76KS. You should also be able to login to it with CSCS user account.
Sometimes the local computer name will be written on a sticker which is on the physical machine. If there is no sticker, then read below on how to find the local machine name.
- The local machine name may also be referred to/known as the device name, hostname or computer name.
- If you are on the network domain “mints” or “medlan” then your machine is either currently supported or has been on CSCS support in the past. If you are unsure, please contact the Service Desk to check.
- Supported printers should also have a sticker on them with a name, you will need to contact the Service Desk to check the support for a printer. If you can also provide details of the IP address of the printer, that would also help our technicians.
