Network Infrastructure Documentation Management

By CrimsonPaw ·
Hello all,

I've been tasked with finding a software package to help organize our network infrastructure documentation. We are a mid-sized organization with around 100 off-site offices so there is a fair amount of information to store for each office (circuit information, router configs, IP addressing, floor layouts, etc.).

Has anyone used a product that would store a variety of document types (word docs, excel docs, visio diagrams, etc.) and can index these docs. I'd go as far as saying a package that used a DB backend would be preferable.

Any advice is appreciated.

Indexing and INDEXING

by JamesRL In reply to Network Infrastructure Do ...

I've used and set up both Sharepoint and Lotus Notes. Both use databases to store documents and track changes, add revision numbers etc. Lotus Notes can actually index text within a document.

Sharepoint comes with new Windows servers, Notes costs $$. Sharepoint integrates well into MS Office 2003 and Office XP environments, Lotus Notes has a whole ability to be customized and programmed far beyond what you can do with Sharepoint.

My bottom line - if Sharepoint does all you want, use it. If you need more, Notes.

There is a free-form textual database askSam 6 - details from I first saw it in use over 10 years ago. It supports a variety of document formats. However, you may have to scan the Visio diagrams and OCR them before importing them, unless you can export from Visio into another format.
