There is always a "shop" since someone/someplace is running the database. In other words to my knowledge Oracle does not track this so it would have to be manually tracked.

Though as I think about it if there is anywhere in the database where Oracle stored the server name along with other data it would in Statspack snapshot data or in the AWR (10g+). I have never looked for it but it I really needed to find something in the database I would look at these two areas though I think it unlikely you can find the answer there since both sets of data is usually only retained for short periods of time.
