Server Config Database

Does anyone know of a software package (or packages) that keeps track of server configs? Like IP settings, etc. So if you had to rebuild from scratch, you could work from this info.

My boss came to me and said he's heard of it, but had nothing specific. He also thought it cost $, so maybe it goes out and polls servers to get that info. If not, then it seems an Access DB would work just as well.

also - this refers to Netware servers, as well as Linux / MS.

It's not cheap. I believe it's based on the number of servers. You'll
need to talk to a sales to get a quote.
