Hello All,

I have recently been tasked with surveying a new site.  The computing environment was setup and maintained by an Admin who kept no notes or records that I can find.  It has some Windows 2000 Serveres and some Windows 2003 servers and an Exchange  2003 Server.  I am tasked with surveying the site:  Determining Existing Server Rolls - which are Domain Controllers, which are Global Catalog servers, DHCP, DNS, etc.  Basically all of the pertinate information one would generally take note of when building a site.

My question is, does anyone know of any tools that would make this task easy/simple?
