The IBM wiki and now Knowledge Centre publish a worksheet you can use when installing Connections to help document your work. I have used this, or a version of this, when I’m doing installs but unfortunately although the wiki (4.5) version can be copied / pasted straight into Excel and retain its table format, the Knowledge Centre Connections 5 one here doesn’t format properly when I take it into a spreadsheet. Rather than spend time trying to work out how to fix it I created my own spreadsheet and since I’m using it this week for another install I thought it would be useful to share here.
It’s in Excel format, one tab per product. Fill this in as you install and you have ready made documentation.
