Any there are freely available Documentation Standards for what an IT organization should follow? Does ITIL give any examples of what should be required in documentation? Are the any freely available examples or templates for documentation?
Can anyone recommend what should be required?
Here is an example of what I think would be needed for a router or switch.
Location of IOS or OS image, location of configuration files, Document detailing how to stop, restart , ip addresses, network diag. list of network ports and connections to equipment. Steps if the device should have a problem - contact tech support. Steps if the device should fail, 24/7 support with vendor, grab replacement from X , or contact vendor, etc. If an hot spare is on the network online. How the device is monitored, what to do for specific alerts, and how to review for capacity / performance planning to and ensure the device will not become a bottleneck.
