Advice on system architecture diagrams for VMware, Exchange and AD

Hi I have to do system architecture diagrams for environment

Its very documentation heavy, have to cover VMware, Active Directory, 2008R2 forest mode and on premise Exchange 2010

Is there any guidelines people would recommend i realise its a general query

For instance are there free tools that provide mapping which i can use with visio

I have seen the free stencils Veeam provide and they look good

I am looking to do high level overview then go a bit deeper and also include support documentation which will be a lot more straightforward

Any pointers appreciated

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
