NetWrix Server Configuration Change Reporter
Even minor configuration changes made to servers can potentially impact your users and cause major disruptions to businesses. Every time a change is made, it makes a lot of sense to properly document and communicate it, especially when the servers are maintained by multiple team members. Another example is very common: changes made yesterday broke your systems, and you don't remember the old settings. A popular web resource for IT professionals, TechRepublic, considers failure to maintain change documentation the 3rd among 10 worst things IT professionals can do. Logging all changes manually is a time consuming and error-prone task, and requires signficant efforts in environments of all sizes, whether you have 1 server or a thousand. Also beware of unauthorised changes, because nobody will ever document them at all.
Powered by AuditAssurance™ technology, Server Configuration Change Reporter performs automated auditing and reporting of all changes made to server configurations: hardware devices, drivers, software, services, networking settings, etc. The product centrally monitors multiple servers and generates summary reports about any changes detected. New hardware devices, driver upgrades, registry settings, local users and groups, changes to services and applications - no change will pass behind the scenes, no matter who made it and how. You just setup this tool once and start getting daily summary reports about all changes, grouped by server name.
The product can be installed separately, but also is available as a part of an integrated NetWrix Change Reporter Suite that automates auditing of the entire IT infrastructure.
