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 your organisation time and money by creating an inventory of servers, devices and assets within an environment and generating technical documentation.
Scan your network to automatically retrieve the configuration of all the connected systems then view it in a web interface and run powerful reports to analyse your network infrastructure.
