I think it would be best to have the LDAP service running almost from
the very beginning, 'primary' databases (do we have databases for
'administrative' purposes !?) would be next. Thus it might be pretty
easy to determine which machine should be up first.

Wrt. the names, I'd go with the OSL naming scheme as long as OSL is
doing the host OS maintenance. Otherwise go with the respective DNS
names or functions (wiki - if it's going to have its own VM, lists,
qgis, postgres, ....).

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
