Create Network Switch Configuration Documentation
XIA Configuration Server automatically inventories your network switch configuration and connected devices. Use the PDF export feature to generate professional documentation.
Here are a few examples of how XIA Configuration Server can be used to benefit your organisation:
- Locate incorrectly configured port and duplex settings
- Determine what devices are or were connected to a specific switch port
- Audit the manufacturers and models currently supported by the organisation
All of XIA Configuration's features are supported when documenting network switches, including version control, production of professional documentation, reporting, change tracking and XML output.
