Hyper-V Documentation Tool

Automated documentation software to help you keep track of your Hyper-V environments

Use our Hyper-V documentation tool XIA Configuration to automatically document your Hyper-V servers. Record the configuration of your Hyper-V environments, easily troubleshoot issues, and audit your virtual machines e.g. find old operating systems that need to be upgraded.

XIA Configuration can also be used to document Windows and Unix virtual machines running in Hyper-V.

XIA Configuration has a non-intrusive architecture with agentless data collection.

Inventory

Automatically detect and scan Hyper-V server installations on Windows machines which, in turn, are automatically detected when scanning Active Directory. Virtual machines connected to the domain will also be detected, scanned and added to the inventory.

Hyper-V servers can also be scanned manually by specifying a list of machine names or IP addresses.

Relationship Map

XIA Configuration automatically generates a map showing the relationships between servers, virtual switches, virtual machines and other items:

Reporting

In addition to generating full Hyper-V server documentation, you can run reports across multiple servers and virtual machines to check compliance and help both IT and business users get the information they need.

The reports are web-accessible and include filtering, sorting and exporting to CSV and PDF.
