    How Do you... Document Your Network

    Hello Everyone,

    How do you document your networks?

    I'm looking at tones of word and txt files thinking there must be a better way.

    Thanks for your input.

    .Adam

    Mine is a combination of SharePoint wiki for SOPs and a few Word documents printed out in a red folder with enough information to fix things if the network is so broken that the wiki is unavailable.

    (Wiki didn't have to be in SharePoint of course, but I was already using SharePoint for other things).

    We use excel for documenting switch ports allocation with a visual cell lay out of the switches.

    Sharepoint Knowledge Base and a smattering of files. The one that I always worry about is passwords... dont' really want to keep the sole copy on the network but at the same time physical security of the documentation is vital as well...
