    Perhaps someone could help.
    Does anyone know of a website that explains what items should be documented
    for a network?
    Things that I can think of for example are, each computers IP address, it's
    OS, memory and processor. Also the wiring diagram of the network, domain
    name and the like.
    I have been charged with this project and need to get it right.

    Maybe someone knows of a template of sorts that I can find that will make
    this easier?

    Thanks so much!

    Although to be honest I do not have any experience with this, but I thought
    of a tool which might come in handy:
    http://www.nagios.org
    the only drawback might be that it runs on linux.
    This tool monitors your network for failures and such. As you can see on the
    screenshots page ( http://www.nagios.org/screenshot.php ) it also gives
    quite a nice roadmap to your network, which might be nice to add to your
    documents perhaps.
