Our company planned to move their hundreds of servers (virtual and physical) to a brand new datacenter infrastructure.
First, we have created a spreadsheet which lists the configuration of all the links and between servers and networks equipements, including MAC and IP addresses. Second, we have inventoried all the current physical network jacks. We're now searching a solution to match those jacks with the relevant interface displayed on the differents operating systems (both virtual and physical). We have already found some matchs, but for some it seems impossible to get information without unplug the cable or shutdown the server.
Is there a way to indentify the logical and physical interfaces names without any interruption of service ? (except by tracing cables on site).
Thanks for any help.
