Thanks for taking the time to write this article. I have implemented a similar process in my environment. To collect the majority of my data, I use a modified version of David Bird's SQL Overview SSIS Package.

Using David's articles and SSIS code, I have customized it for the uniqueness of the systems which I am responsible for. Your idea of printing everything out and storing in a binder with signatures, will be a a topic for discussion with my next planning meeting with my boss. I look forward to your future SSC postings.
