An internal Wiki with a page dedicated to each machine or machine-class.
There's good integration between TWiki and Bugzilla, but we have the
classic dichotomy of ticket systems vs bug-trackers: Bugzilla is better
for software, RT is better for hardware and networks.
Wikis greatly increase the retention and availability of knowledge: they
are easy to use, so people *do* use them; they are easy to search, so
people do that, too.
