More on Racktables...

I figured that I should say some more about Racktables. It's very useful. You can use it to manage:

  • IPv4 and IPv6 inventory - ditch that spreadsheet!

  • Server network interface IP configuration documentation, including what port maps to what switch port

  • Virtual host to hypervisor relationships

  • VLAN inventory - again, ditch that spreadsheet.

  • Server maintenance contracts - store a PDF copy as part of a server object

  • And quite a bit more.

    In just a few weeks, I've found it very useful. It's definitely worth the minimal set up time.
