And watch for the removable faceplates.  We've been bitten before
after a server move by rebooting a server that had the correct label
but the wrong faceplate.  Now we label the faceplate as well as
underneath of it too.  :-)

Not just faceplates; we got a couple of racks of used Dell servers and
were rolling through testing them when we discovered a couple where the
Dell tag on the lid didn't match the firmware.  The tag on the back did;
at some point, somebody had switched lids on the cases!
