What about labeling the cables?  My rack's nodes' ethernet and power
cables are marked with the node's name at each end.  It was a low tech
approach involving printing names, cutting paper into strips with
scissors, and taping them on.  There are other types of label, many
based on modified zip ties, but they still have to be applied by hand.
