As you probably know, the File Services team provides a Best Practices Analyzer tool (BPA). It includes several rules for the configuration, operation, performance and security of the SMB, NFS, DFS-N, DFS-R and FSRM.

Download the File Services BPA directly from Windows Update or from the Download Center at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=8f25a157-16f0-47c1-869e-28ce00e6dd71
