What kind of information do you store about your servers and computers in your CMDB?

And also what kinds of relationships do you store about your CI's - i.e. your desktops/server?

We have to store nearly everything because we are outsourced. We have no access to the servers anymore and the mos clients are in different locations. Locally is only our team desktops.

So we store the physically informations the virtual informations accountant support and workflows.

Physically what hardware how connected and the wireways on top the connection of the power
Thats the only way to make telephone support.

Is it what you asked for?

We are collecting OS Version Patching and Softwareversion with a thirdparty tool and we put this informations as well in the cmdb.

Serverfields:
HWnumber, accounting position, date of purchase, where bought, how much did it cost, how high are the costs every month to run, invoicenumber, oder number, support time, CPU, clustermembership, hardware size, shares, manuals, all ip adresses, responsible man, storrage, what is monitored, network connections, all about software, location, power connection, virtual clientsinformations, how to access.
