Change management using Automated Server Documentation


We’re going to discuss the importance of working with the right tools to keep track of changes in your infrastructure. Besides, having automated server documentation always makes server monitoring and administration easier.

By keeping track of what’s going on in your infrastructure, you can pinpoint exactly what went wrong in minutes, whereas otherwise it would have taken you hours.

So far, most tools out there on the market are based on PowerShell scripts that were developed to emulate automated server documentation. The trouble with PowerShell is that it can generate the settings you want to set; however, it can’t spot changes or compare different server settings over time.

Picture this:

You have a PowerShell script for documenting 500 of your servers. But now you need to track changes manually.

System admin’s main goal should be to have a comprehensive inventory and documented configuration for all servers and workstations. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.

Having complete insight into your servers at all times is no mean feat. If somebody did make a change, I can tell you with absolute certainty that he did not inform his fellow admins, because I’m guessing there’s no strict policy to take care of that.
