Computer Name Submission

Home > Support > Forms > Computer Name Submission
Polaris does not support duplicate names or spaces in the computer name. There is also a 15 character limit on the name(s).

We recommend that you use only Internet-standard characters in the computer name.

The standard characters are the numbers 0 through 9, uppercase and lowercase letters from A through Z, and the hyphen (-) character.

To avoid duplicates, we also recommend that you change your computer name(s) and to prefix it with your library code.
