Server Registration Guidelines:

Servers are integral to many computer systems and networks.  By their nature, they provide special challenges to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer and network resources. 

A server is defined as any device that provides computing service to multiple computers or individuals. See NDUS Procedure 1901.2, Section 1

All servers on the NDSU networks or operated by NDSU entities must be registered with the Vice President for Information Technology (VPIT). 

All servers are subject to established NDUS and NDSU policies, procedures,and standards.  

To register a server, it (the server) must be compliant with NDSU Server Standards. A "Request to Register a Server" form must be completed and submitted to the Chief IT Security Officer.  The registration process needs  to be completed before a static IP number can be assigned to the server.
