I'm looking for a Microsoft Word based server runbook template, and have searched far and wide on the web via Google.  We are a small shop and want to document our server processes for Disaster Recovery and I cannot find a single runbook template.  If you have one you would be willing to share or know of a resource with good IT Templates we are willing to purchase.  Info Tech didn't provide much in this department and am looking for something I can use and alter at my discretion.

I created a relatively basic template for smaller networks that I find is pretty handy for quickly assembling the information I'm looking for on a network most of the time.  Even though this question has been closed for a while I figured I'd put it up here.  Feel free to make any modifications and put your own logo on it but hopefully it's a good starting point for most people.

I tried a couple of times and it looked like it was attached but when I posted my comment it never showed up so I'm not sure what the deal is.  Probably user error but I'll figure it out.

I finally figured out why I couldn't get this working.  IE8 apparently doesn't like "add file" box very much for some reason.

Anyway here's the runbook for anyone who wants it.  Feel free to take my logo off and edit things the way you want them.

I really just designed this to document the physical aspects of smaller networks.  It doesn't address virtualization or anything like that.

Hopefully this helps for all you folks looking for starter documentation.
