Ahoy hoy. The BPA release release cycle has just ticked over once for Windows Server 2008 R2. This means that you can now install – through Windows Update or the Download Center – add-ons that snap into Server Manager and will tell you if you are following MS best practices for your installed roles. Simply install the update, look at the role, and click “scan this role”. After some noodling, BPA will kick out info.


For example, it appears I stink at running DFSN…



But I rule at running DFSR!



Here’s what just shipped:



  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for HYPER-V for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for Network Policy and Access Services for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for Active Directory Rights Management Services for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for Application Server for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for File Services for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for DHCP Server for Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Update for Best Practices Analyzer for Windows Server Update Services for Windows Server 2008 R2


Download them all from here .


Read more about them all here .


You need Windows Server 2008 R2 to use any of this stuff, so add it to your list of reasons to upgrade if you haven’t already. More BPA’s coming out when they… come out. Including updates to these existing ones, in theory.


Hey Mahesh, where’s your post?
