Network Inventory

As with anything IT-related, you have the option to automate all or part of your network inventory. Many different types of software (e.g., asset management programs, network management programs, network inventory tools) have the ability to scan your network and collect information about your existing equipment. However, it takes time to find the right tool, learn it, and integrate it with your networking equipment. If you don’t have a large network, or don’t have the time to investigate network inventory software, use the worksheets provided here.

At the end of each inventory sheet, we’ve included space below for you to record administrative logon information. As always, be careful about how you handle sensitive usernames and passwords. It’s often a good idea to record usernames and passwords in a separate, encrypted file. Also, regardless of how you record logon information, be sure to protect these worksheets and any IT documentation. Even without passwords, a hacker could use the information to compromise your network.
