Abstract : The management of Local Area Networks today is one of the most challenging tasks which face a system manager. The plethora of system software, application software and accessories available combined with the various computer clones, and open architecture present in microcomputers makes tracking Local Area Network configuration and maintenance a very daunting task. This thesis modifies a previous design for a Local Area Network configuration and maintenance database and implements the new design in Dbase IV version 1.1 using the Naval Postgraduate School Administrative Science Department Local Area Networks as a prototype database. The database was designed to be simple to use, to protect data integrity and to be expandable to new equipment, new technology and new data applications. Due to its general nature, the Local Area Network Maintenance and Configuration System can be used on virtually any Local Area Network application.
