Just the other day, the Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer was quietly released as an update for Windows Server 2008 R2.
Like the other BPAs that are built-in to Server 2008 R2, this one is available from within the Server Manager. It allows you to launch and review an analysis of how you have Hyper-V configured, so you can see where your configuration meets (or does NOT meet) known best practices; and giving you hints on how to resolve those configuration practices that may be “less-than-best”.
“Sweet! How do I get it?”

Big thanks to Ben “Virtual PC Guy"' Armstrong and his post about this. I saw it there first.
