UVM Active Directory
Department Designator Codes

The following is a list of six (or fewer) letter designator codes for individual departments.  The purpose of these codes is to serve as a seed for the generation of unique object names in the UVM Active Directory.  OU, User account, Computer account, Security/Distribution Group objects, and Group Policy objects created by Container (OU) Adminsitrators should use the codes to ensure the uniqueness and easy recognition of their objects.

Codes are chosen based on clarity and name collision avoidance.  The Enterprise Administrators will work with departments to choose a mutually-amicable designator.  A change in the designator code of a department will entail a lot of work for the container administrator, so great care should be taken in the selection of this code.

Current designator codes:
