In need of a Microsoft Visio template of a logical datacenter/server diagram.

Need a template that details a simple server/data center environment. Would be nice if there is a breakdown of 4 different network segments (e.g. -  app, db, web, etc). Would also be nice if the template group certain servers together (DCs, SQL, etc). I want to simply just take the Visio diagram template, and just edit the info. A logical diagram would be nice. I really like the example diagram in the third link below. I have Visio 2010, so it must be compatible with that. Max point to best Visio template offered. Please offer up to as much template as you want to provide, and I'll pick out what's best.

Something similar to the following diagrams (i see online), would be ideal:

What do you see for network templates when you create a new document in Visio?
e.g. here are the choices I see in Visio Professional 2007


Here's what the list of stock Network Stencils that were included with Visio Pro 2007 looks like


Here's a sample of free stencils I've collected from manufacturer's web sites and various collections around the web e.g. https://www.google.com/search?q=Free+Network+Stencils+Visio


And some of those came with templates, since apparently some of the stock Visio templates do not allow resizing custom stencils properly.

Darr247 is correct that Visio includes templates and stencils for creating network diagrams. If you don't see as many as you'd like, check to see which edition of Visio you are using: Visio Standard includes only basic templates/stencils. They are not always sufficient for more sophisticated diagrams.

The examples you linked to all look like they have shapes that are part of the more advanced set of templates/stencils that are part of Visio Professional.

I have Visio 2010 Standard, which does not give me anything. Can you send me a template? Anything that has AD servers in a group, Web Servers in a group, Apps, and DB? Thanks.
