I wanted to document our network which includes a EMC SAN, brocade switches, and Dell servers.  I'm thinking of probably using Visio to do this and I wanted to ask anyone if someone might have a template done for this?  Lastly, where do I go to get the images for these devices?

If you're trying to map out and diagram your network, you might want to check out WhatsUpGold http://www.whatsupgold.com/

They provide a network discovery tool and it's all available in a graphical format as well.  You can get a 30 day free trial for the full version too.

In my case, I prefer text drawings. I do mostly just graphs/videos showing performance, temperatures, failure rates, bugs open/close, etc.
