    Does GD need or have one of those CMDBs? I suspect the idea is that folk with networks can readily help a "police inspector" i.e. their long held Seven Year Snitch[tm] (preferably longer) data retention ambitions, where we log eveything in minute detail on the off chance they might need to investigate some serious crime with roots going back that far.

    Yes, I have CMDBs, and yes, I have logs which have helped investigations.

    I also see to it that others have logs, which has also helped in investigations.

    I have also seen investigations fall down because initial information, which could have forced larger checks, was not there ... and subsequent activities showed that if a further investigation was carried out at the time then the individuals could have been dealt with sooner ... but without justification for further investigation it just couldn't be done.

    Anyway, people know my views on documentation, being accountable and being professional. If you have other tools to log things and don't need DHCP reservations , and there are a variety of ways of doing it (a good number tend to be ruled out as too pricey within some schools or to complex to set up it seems ... or simply not needed).
