XEOX is using following schema for the location of hardware and Persons:
You can create a Site and the Subnet (see IPPlan) in one step.
For new hardware following algorithm will automatically select the site:
Search for a Subnet (IPPlan). If found => use the Site from the Subnet. \ e.g. if the hardware has an IP address from the range 10.1.x.x. it would be assigned to Vienna. If 10.2.x.x it would be assigned to Klagenfurt. For all other, see step 2.
Once you have created a site, you can define Buildings, Floors, Rooms and Racks.
After you have defined your Rooms, you can use them for Hardare Locations:\ e.g. press the Button under Room and select the Room from the Dialog
You can create a Rack in a room. This can be used for Network Devices. e.g. Assign a Switch to a Rack:
To create the permanent cabling it is best to start from the patch panel. Before you do this, you should create a complete building plan, i.e. all rooms that you want to connect from the patch panel should be created first.
Creating the Patch Panels:
Creating the Patch Panels - Ports\ You can create a range of ports in one step. e.g. A1 til A16
\ means that the port has no connection to a socket. So you have to define a connection to a socket.
Select Assign Endpoints from the Burger Menu
and select the Room where the Socket is located. e.g. Room 102. After pressing create socket following will happen:
Now you see the link on the Patch panel\
You can create manually a socket. e.g. in Room 103
Than you can make the link from Socket to Patchpanel
Or from the other side, Patchpanel to Socket
It makes no difference whether you go from Patchpanel to Socket or from Socket to Patchpanel.
Connections between distribution rooms are often realized via patch panels. Patch panels are installed on both sides. In order to map this cabling, first both patch panels must be created with the corresponding ports. Afterwards a connection can be created between two ports.
