How do I know which computer is referenced in the Classification Survey email?

Tags Classify

Each network registration entry indicates who the “owner” of the computer is and who the “primary user” of the computer is.  The primary user will receive the Classification Survey email.

If you are unfamiliar with the computer name in the email, there are a couple of ways for us to help you figure it out.

Our Network Registration database (NetReg) includes additional information about your computer.  The information is collected when the computer is first registered and may not have been updated.  Information collected includes the location, operating system, and in some cases blue tag and serial number.  Contact the OIT HelpDesk or go to netreg.utk.edu and choose View All Registrations to access this information.

You can also determine which computer you are currently using by taking the steps below.  You can follow these instructions from all your computers to determine the IP name of that computer.

From a computer connected to the wired network or eduroam, go to help.utk.edu/whois/.  The name if the computer is located in the top box. You may repeat this process on all of your network devices until you determine which machine is which.

  1. Go to netreg.utk.edu.  Choose View All Your Registrations on the left menu. 

Once you have logged in, you will see a list of all the computers where you are the assigned owner.

If the computer in the email is not on this list, you are not the owner of record.  

If you need any assistance, contact the OIT HelpDesk for assistance determining the IP name of your computer.  The OIT HelpDesk can provide additional information such as create date and the location on record.
