>          Hostname :: Description
> mm-win-vista-31-1 :: mm-win-vista-1
> mm-win-vista-31-2 :: mm-win-vista-2
> mm-win-vista-31-3 :: mm-win-vista-3
> mm-win-vista-31-4 :: mm-win-vista-32

They all should match
Actually for some of them also the hostname is wrong.
I'll update all 4 machines to have correct names.
This is actually a limitation of NetBIOS to 15 characters:

I think I'll leave the Vista machines names consistent to:
`mm-win-vista-x`
All 4 nodes are back online.

We still have a disconnect between the name we use in Jenkins `mm-win-vista-32-X`
And as a network name since we can reach all machines at `mm-win-vista-32-X.qa.scl3.mozilla.com`

But their names and description is now set at `mm-win-vista-X` because of the 15 characters limitation in NetBios as mentioned in comment 2

Yes, that is something we cannot change. Unfortunately. Thanks for doing the update Andrei!
