Datacenter Devices

TeemIP's Datacenters Devices Management module relies on iTop's Datacenters Devices Management module that has been slightly adapted to integrate with TeemIP's specific IP objects. For a comprehensive reference to that iTop source module, please, refer to the Datacenter Management Module chapter in iTop wiki.

The Datacenter Devices that have been modified by TeemIP are:

Class of CIs Icon Description
Enclosure An Enclosure is a cabinet generally fitted with doors and side panels. Enclosures may contain baffles, fans, and other features. Then can be mounted inside a Rack or directly fitted on the wall.
PDU A PDU (Power Distribution Unit) is a device fitted with multiple outputs designed to distribute electric power, especially to racks of computers and networking equipment located within the datacenter.
Power Source A Power Source is used to document in iTop any kind of power source (main power inlet, breaker…) that is not a PDU.
Rack A computer Rack is a metal frame used to hold various hardware devices such as servers, hard disk drives, other electronic equipment.

Two attributes have been added to all these classes.

Name Type Mandatory?
IP Address Foreign key to a(n) IPv4 or IPv6 Address No
MAC address Formated alphanumeric string No

Upon creation or modification, an IP Address attribute can be set as a foreign key to an IP address. A drop-down box will list a choice of available IP addresses.

  • According to the Allow attachment of already allocated IPs to CIs parameter defined in the Global IP Settings of the IP's organization:
    • Only addresses which status is released or unassigned (i.e. not allocated nor reserved) will be offered,
    • Or
    • Only addresses which status is allocated, released or unassigned (i.e. not reserved) will be offered,
  • Status of IP is automatically changed when IP is attached to the data centre device or removed from it,
  • If enabled through IP settings, CI name is copied into IP short name.
MAC addresses can be entered following 01:23:45:67:89:ab or 01-23-45-67-89-ab or 0123.4567.89ab format but are displayed according to the MAC Address Output Format parameter defined in the Global IP Settings of the CI's organization.
