Data Center or Server Room Qualification


Can anyone please let me know if you qualify your data center too at the manufacturing plants? The main network link is coming from the corporate office which is situated at a different state. Recently we had to shift our server room from ground floor to first floor in the same block. We have qualified our infrastructure components as well. My query is should a data center at plant be qualified as well?

What should be the approach for a data center qualification. Can we capture the requirements in a qualification protocol and prepare a test script based on that protocol to execute it or we should capture the requirements in a separate user requirments specification document?
