I started a new job about a month ago and I am trying to get a handle on the local network. There is very little documentation and the previous IT department personnel have all moved on, our "old-timer" has been here about 6 months and is mainly a programmer. The setup is basically an elaborate peer-to-peer with about 50-60 computers connected to 8 servers with about 5-6 switches. I still find computers sitting in closets running as print servers, being used as gateways of sorts, etc.
Where do I start? Are there any software, forms, databases, spreadsheets, anything, where I could get a feel for what I need to start doing?
I do realize a big start will be finding everything touching the network and documenting it. Any other suggestions?
Thanks for any help,
