      Hi,

      We do not have a proper documentation for our Datacenter Racks. So we are looking for a tool where we can draw Rack diagrams and add servers to it. Connect the servers to the PDU's.

      In a nutshell a documentation with diagrams on how the rack setup we have in the DC's

          Spiceworks does some of the features you require.

          But like all solutions in the "free or zero cost space", work will have to be done to get the solution to work for you.

            Assuming (a bad idea I know) you don't know what is where on your networks, these free tools may be of help collate the info to pop into Visio.
