Tools to document the Network

By Tim Marshall - Houston ·
Does anyone know of any tools that can aid in mapping out the topology of a network and an AD Forest structure. I am about to inherit a network with little or no documentation and I may need some tools to accomplish this. Thanks.

3Com had a pretty good free tool called Network Supervisor (be sure to get Service Pack 2 also). They want your info to download it but they haven't bothered me after I got it.

I should add that I need tools that will discover the network topology and AD configuration automatically.

Check out Computer Associate's website. They have a number of enterprise level management tools for different platforms. One product that looks like it'll do the job (and then some) is their Unicenter Advanced Network Operations pack.

Best of luck!

They've also got a great commercial. If the app is as good as they say it is, what will we worry about next?

ecora can do windows configuration and they also have a documentation for exchange servers also.
web site is www.ecora.com they have a limited trail version for 5 servers/workstations the software isn't very costly also.
Visio Enterprize additionis also a very good tool for generating diagrams you can modify they we you are done. Ecora works with visio to generate diagrams and does a wonderful job , It has saved me days of work.
