Hyper-V Inventory, Documenting and Reporting Tool

Automatically inventory and run reports on your Hyper-V environment with our network documentation tool XIA Configuration Server.

Audit and document the Hyper-V server role & bare-metal hypervisors, generation 1 and 2 virtual machines, host configuration (including live migration), replication settings and virtual networking.

Hyper-V is a native hypervisor that enables platform virtualization on x86-64 systems. It can be installed as a server role in Windows Server 2008 and above and is also available as a standalone bare metal hypervisor.

All of XIA Configuration Server's features are supported when documenting Hyper-V, including version control, production of professional documentation, inventory, reporting, change tracking, XML output and more.
