What do you mean "Person responsible for the machine?"

Please include the person ultimately responsible for this computer at CSM. Typically, the "owner" of the machine is also the "responsible person," however, there are cases where this varies. For example, a CSM graduate student will be using a new PC for the next year and needs a new IP address for it. That PC will stay in the department after the graduate student leaves CSM. That graduate student should provide their name as well as their advisor's name. That way, our records will have a contact person for the machine after the graduate student has left.

Another example--for computers that will be used by multiple people, but are administered by one support person (e.g. some office machine, lab machines, and so on). The "responsible person" in this case would be the support person for that computer.
