Network Documentation Tool


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.

We have achieved a real efficiency improvement after implementing and using XIA Configuration within our multi-client managed services company.

By using change management within XIA Configuration we are faster and more effective in determining causes of certain incidents that occur within the managed infrastructure.

We were so convinced of the value added by XIA Configuration that in addition to using it ourselves we decided to become a reseller for the product for the Dutch market.
