Distributed system configuration is a complex process, since it involves solving interrelated issues, corresponding to different configuration stages usually supported by automated or semiautomated independent tools. A common model for distributed system representation in all configuration stages enables the identification of unclear application specific dependencies between discrete stages. It should also be easily realized in various software tools used to automate discrete configuration stages and facilitate the designer to efficiently provide system specifications. We propose to use UML to model all aspects of distributed system configuration process by extending and integrating different diagram types. Alternative views of the system emphasizing specific configuration stages are offered
through the realization of extended UML diagrams. Rational Rose software platform is used for implementation purposes.
