I too post to this email list anonymously for reasons which were just stated.

You might want to try something from Linmor Technologies...

This plugs directly into remedy, so you can do change & trouble ticketting quite easily.

With this vendors software, you can also make changes to your network, then read the network & the updated configuration you just put in with this software, & the changes are then plugged directly into your configuration database. This allows your network to be synched with the configuration database, as the configuration databse would now shows the active configuration in the network.

Very easy to use & available for small & carrier class networks.

& quite a few other features available.

I've used FootPrints in the past with very good success. It not only served our change management processes but also help desk trouble ticketing. Its very customizable and quite affordable.
