Creating disaster recovery documentation

We've noticed a trend in the use of our product XIA Configuration being used to generate documentation to be used as part of a DR plan.

XIA Configuration can help plug into the DR plan by providing very detailed and up to date information on your network infrastructure and can help with the recovery of failed servers or redeployment in case of a DR scenario.

With the information provided it is sometimes possible to deploy a replacement server more quickly than it's possible to recover the failed server.

Information collected that can help with DR includes

Disaster Recovery Capabilities
  • IP addressing information
  • User account configuration
  • Networking device configuration
  • Server configuration
  • DHCP server configuration
  • DNS server configuration
