Great 'site documentation' toolkit for SharePoint

As in much of the IT world, when you build a new system or farm, you need to document everything for posterity - and to save potentially hours of effort when things stop working in the future. SharePoint 2010 is no different.

Doc_kit I just learned of a tool that will document your SharePoint farm(s) for you, greatly easing the problem most of us will face at one point or another. From the folks at Acceleratio Ltd based in Croatia but with  US sales and support, the folks who created the Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint understand both the problem - and their audience. Pricing is available per farm ($299 US) or, for consulting firms that maintain multiple farms for their users, for $499.

There is a 30 day free evaluation/download; and using the claim code 'summer2011' you can get 50% of the purchase price through the end of August.

Normally we would have posted this on SearchComponentsOnline.com, another site we run; but it's pretty new, and not as many people know to look there for free and low cost tools for those interested in enterprise search.

Thanks for sharing! I'm always looking to evaluate new tools for enterprise search when I come across them...am looking forward to testing this out, especially at the great price break.
Glad it was helpful Joe. Let us know if there are other tools you've found useful so we can tell others about them!
