SYDI is a project I’ve created to help system administrators to document their networks and people seem to appreciate it! What SYDI does is to collect information about computer systems and present it in a neat way. There are four versions of SYDI available:
- SYDI-Server – Uses WMI to collect information from Windows computers and writes output to Microsoft Word or XML. (Download SYDI-Server 2.0)
- SYDI-SQL – Does SQL queries against Microsoft SQL Servers and writes output to Microsoft Word or XML. (Download SYDI-SQL 0.8)
- SYDI-Exchange – Gathers information by LDAP and writes output to Microsoft Word or XML. (Download SYDI-Exchange 0.4)
- SYDI-Linux – Gathers information from a Linux box and writes output to XML. (Download SYDI-Linux 0.1)
SYDI-Server, SYDI-SQL and SYDI-Exchange are written in VBscript. SYDI-Linux is written in Python.
