FAQ: How do I document my Configuration Manager Hierarchy?

To answer a question frequently asked in the community, the best solution can be found in a couple of freely downloadable utilities, however, there is also a manual way to do this using the Visio stencil set.

The first free utility is from Enhansoft, which comes in the form of a script that runs against your ConfigMgr server.  Download it from this page (registration is required):

The second free utility is from Tondtware, called SMSMap. SMSMap is a  freeware ConfigMgr 2007 / SMS 2003 hierarchy drawing tool. It is an all-in-one solution for creating Visio drawings of any combination of ConfigMgr 2007 and SMS 2003 site servers. It can be downloaded from here:

If you opt for the more manual process of utilizing Visio, you’ll at least need the ConfigMgr stencil set.  You can grab that here:  ConfigMgr (SCCM) 2012 Visio Stencils v0.7 (2.9m)

The stencil set has been updated for ConfigMgr 2012, but can be utilized for any version of ConfigMgr.
