Trace Walk Port to port in closet

We recently aquired a new building, the building has already been wired, none of the plates are labeled.  I am trying to figure the best way to trace the wall plates back to closet so i can label them.  This is mixture of Live networks & inactive networks.  Whats tools / methods should be used?

You need a toner like the one above. I have three different brands and they all work about the same. You will require the computer to be unplugged from the wall jack to do this but the switch should not care much and the remainder of your network should continue to function fine while searching.

They cost more, but if you need some "bells and whistles", the Fox and Hound is really good for this kind of stuff.

I would get a LAN mapper tool.  You can find and label multiple lines at a time.  I use this one, it's cheap and works great.

I found this tool from Sperry it seems to work very well for what we need it for.
Thanks for the input
