Question Capturing system settings


Hi

I'm looking for a little guidance here on capturing my existing configurations. I have about a dozen servers with openSUSE and CentOS distributions.

I would like to document each boxes existing hardware and software configurations, e.g., memory, HDD and whether they're RAIDe'ed or not, PCI information, etc as well as system configurations, e.g, ifcfg-eth1, etc.

Is there a simple method to where I can capture all of this with built in utilities or should I look for a tool to install and use? What configurations do you suggest should be captured? The OS is installed without GUI so its CLI all the way.

Thanks in advance
MJC

Maybe start with servdoc. Have a look at the demo page(s).

For Centos you could look at grabbing the contents of /etc/sysconfig/hwconf and/or run lshw, lspci. Maybe even look at /var/log/dmesg.

You might try: biosdecode and dmidecode for hardware detected; while for driver used by kernel try looking in /var/log/messages and /proc .
