Security Classification: Find the Device Referenced in the Classification Survey Email

Tags Classify

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

If you are unfamiliar with the device name in the email, we can help you figure it out in a couple of ways.

Our Network Registration database (NetReg) includes additional information about your device. The information is collected when the device is first registered and may not have been updated. It includes the location, operating system, and, in some cases, blue tag and serial number. Contact the OIT HelpDesk or go to NetReg: Manage My Devices and log in to access this information.

You can also determine which device you are currently using by following the steps below. You can follow these instructions from all your devices to determine the IP name of each one.

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

  1. Go to NetReg: Manage My Devices and log in.

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

If the device 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 device.  The OIT HelpDesk can provide additional information, such as create date and the location on record.
