At work I am mapping out our network. Instead of visio I am using omni graffle and very happy with the asthetics and ease of use.
I am setting it up so that it is separated into both logical (firewall security zone) and physical (rack number with list of computers that are inside it). I am running into problems doing it this way, as I have already found racks that have machines that exist it multiple security zones.
Another problem I encountered is the one that brought me to the title of tonights post: We have a number of virtual machines that don’t really (physically) live anywhere. The OS may consist of file systems mounted from multiple SANs in multiple racks and being run from a hypter-visor that exists in yet another rack. So, what rack does that vm belong in?
How have you guys dealt with this soft of thing?
