To record the specifics of the managed environment and the deployment design and implementation, create a document called a deployment build guide. As with the solution architecture diagram, this chapter describes information that you should add to the deployment build guide. The deployment build guide should include the complete design and all installation specifications, validation results, and tuning activities.

Start the deployment build guide by recording all the information that you gather on the network, some of which may come from your planning of IP Availability Manager or IP Performance Manager installations. As you continue the deployment process, this guide will include recommendations for adding other information to the deployment build guide.
