The configuration file for the SBS 2003 BPA has been updated with new rules and a couple of fixes. Some of the new checks include:
You can ensure that you have the latest version of the configuration file by clicking on the "About the Best Practices Analyzer" link on the left, the current (as of 10/22/2008) Configuration File Version is 126.96.36.199.
I am running this on my server and it reports that SBS Service Pack 1 is not installed.
Under Windows Explorer Help About it shows my version as being
Version 5.2 (Build 3790.srv03_sp2_gdr.080813-1204: Service Pack 2
It also reports that the updates for OWA, Vista and the POP3 connector have not been installed when they have been.
OK - further update. the OWA issue has now been resolved by running directly on the server.
The POP3 error (fixable via Windows Update) http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95161
and the Outlook 2007/Vista
fix won't install with SP2 installed
