...  think the documents you are trying to create are called ... Build documents ... documents you are suppost to make when the server is built or altered ... starting the documentation now is of course better than having no documentation at all. My advise would be to write some standard documents that apply to applications in general. So a default installation manual for the SQL Servers. Than, if necessary, write a separate document for a specific server that defects from these standards, but only document the defects. I hope that you did a lot of similar installations, than this approach of installation documents and build documents can save you a lot of work and time.

Good luck ...
Hope this helps ...
