bpaAs many of you know I love the great tools that are built-into Windows Server 2008 R2.  I really like the inclusion of the Best Practices Analyzer (BPA).  When Windows Server 2008 R2 Launched it only had the following 5 analyzers built-in: Active Directory Certification Services, Active Directory directory services, DNS, Remote Desktop Services, and Web Server (Internet Information Services.  Well I was updated some of the servers in my lab, and I happed to notice we have included even more updates for the BPA Tool:

  • Active Directory Rights Management
  • Application Server
  • DHCP Server
  • File Services
  • Hyper-V
  • Network Policy and Access Services (NAP)
  • Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)

So another great reason to keep your servers up to date, more tools!!!!

If you have not a had a chance to see the Best Practices Analyzer in action on Windows Server 2008 R2, check out my screencast, I published a few months back.
