Hi All,

I was looking for some visio diagram templates to create diagrams of my VMware setup including the surrounding network.  Does anyone have a good template for this?

we find these useful

Part 1 http://communities.vmware.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/2037163-87941/VMW_PPT_LIBRARY_Icons-Diagrams_2Q12_1_of_3.pptx

 Part 2 http://communities.vmware.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/2037163-87939/VMW_PPT_LIBRARY_Icons-Diagrams_2Q12_2_of_3.pptx

We also use Maps from vSphere Client/vCenter Server and Veeam reporter to document and build plans.

if you are doing documentation, I would also recommend EE's very own

Experts Exchange's "datacenter rack utilization and locator application", also known as dRACKula. Designed by EE's sysadmins, who were frustrated with lost productivity configuring and updating server racks, it allows you to monitor and update your systems with a smart phone or tablet -- from anywhere.
