Exchange, ISA, SQL and Windows Server all have a best practice analyser – the BPA looks at the system and reviews the particular product for it’s setup and configuration and compliance to the recommended best practice as put forth by the MS Product Support Services teams. Well – soon (like in the next week or so), Microsoft will launch the SBS 2003 Best Practice Analyser. I’ve beta tested this now for a few weeks and it’s pretty cool indeed. Here’s a few screenshots to keep you interested till it’s released. I’ll let you know when it’s available here on this blog.
See – it even shows that I’ve got both WSS 2.0 and WSS 3.0 installed on this server.
And the results screen – each of the items can be expanded to show more detail on how we can resolve the issues.
