If they are Dell servers, you could always name each host in their BIOS so
it shows up on the display of the host.

provided the dell actually had that display, and provided the server
didn't toss a PS ...

sort of looks neat, wonder if the tape is the split-type.

ok, this is horribly pragmatic, but it's real.  yesterday i was in the
westin playing rack and stack for five hours.  an horrifyingly large
amount of my time was spent trying to peel apart labels made on my
portable brother label tape maker, yes peeling the backing from a little
label so remote hands could easily confirm a server they were going to
attack.

The Brother I have that takes "M" tape has the problem you describe,
it's nearly impossible to get the backing to separate from the label.

I have another Brother that takes "TZ" tape, the backing of the tape of
slit down the middle lengthwise.  Gently curling the tape by squeezing
it causes the middle to pop open, easy to grab.

You can guess which one sits on the shelf, and which one gets used a
lot.

The TZ tape unit I use is a P-Touch 1100QL, I don't think it's made
anymore but there are several similar curent models.
