If you have not begun the process of documenting your network, then please begin as soon as you finish reading my first posting on Tools for documentation – screen marking & screen captures and this posting. These tools will come in real handy in a crunch to identify causes of issues and when you are not around to help with resolution.
The next tool I would like to describe is NeDi – short for network discovery. Take a look at this 4 minute movie about NeDi and what it can do for you.
Are you impressed yet? I know I was when I discovered this network tool and how it can be used and extended. Some of the screenshots below may help you with the decision if this tool will work for your environment or not.
I’m sure you have other tools and processes you use. Please feel free to share them with the others here and help make someone else’s life easier. Enjoy the movie above. I think the guy has a very good sense of humor and knows his movies!
