Setup worksheet (Surface Hub)

When you've finished pre-setup and are ready to start first-time setup for your Microsoft Surface Hub, make sure you have all the information listed in this section.

You should fill out one list for each Surface Hub you need to configure, although some information can be used on all Surface Hubs, like the proxy information or domain credentials. Some of this information may not be needed, depending on how you've decided to configure your device, or depending on how the environment is configured for your organization's infrastructure.

Friendly name

The friendly name of the device is the broadcast name that people will see when they try to wirelessly connect to the Surface Hub. This name will be displayed prominently on the Surface Hub's screen. We suggest that the friendly name you choose is recognizable and unique so that people can distinguish one Surface Hub from another when trying to connect.

Device name

The device name is the name that will be used for domain join, and is the identity you will see in your MDM provider if the device is enrolled into MDM. The device name you choose must not be the same name as any other device on the user’s Active Directory domain (if you decide to domain join the device). The device cannot join the domain if its name is not unique.
