We're really happy with XIA Configuration. It automates what used to take 2 days in no time at all and it can be run as often as you like. We use it on all our Windows Servers, Windows PCs, Active Directory, Citrix Farms and our VMware environment to produce the documentation we need for our external auditors.
The support from CENTREL Solutions has been excellent. We raised a few queries and the responses were prompt and very helpful.
We would certainly recommend XIA Configuration to anyone looking to automate the production of their server documentation as it has saved us a great deal of effort.
XIA Configuration saves you time and money by automatically creating an inventory of the servers, devices and assets within your environment and generating technical documentation, a task that takes a lot longer to perform manually.
It scans your entire network, brings back the configuration of all connected systems, and displays it in a web interface that includes powerful reporting functionality which allows you to analyse your infrastructure.
