Abstract

When managing computer workstations in an enterprise it is vital that each system be uniquely and individually identified. Whether an RDBMS or written ledger is used to track workstation assets, each individual workstation must be assigned a value or that uniquely identifies the system. This value should be unique within an enterprise and easily reproducible.
