Before you begin, watch the following IT Glue express video (1:17):
- Load the network attached devices in the client environment as configurations.
- If multiple clients are serviced by a single ISP, capture the vendor's contact information in a central place. For more information, see Vendors.
- Create a document with procedures for a fall-back internet connection, if present. Consider this question: If there was an after hours internet outage at the client site, are there any other procedures that should be documented?
