  • Checks for Mailbox Manager policies enabled on recipient policies
  • Check for non default value of the otherWellKnownObjects attribute of the Configuration container
  • Checks if there is a mismatch files between the store.exe and exoledb.dll files
  • Verify that there is not a smarthost specified on the Virtual server
  • Verify Sysvolready registry key equal to 1
  • Verify that the sysvol share exist
  • Check for events in the event log indicating that the server is in Journal wrap
  • Check to verify that DCOM is enabled
  • Check for the existence of a postmaster account
  • Check to see if your email domain is specified in the msExchTurfListNames attribute
  • Check to ensure that Integrated Windows Authentication is enabled on the default SMTP virtual server
  • Check to make sure that there are no unchecked email addresses in a recipient policy
  • Check to ensure the Administrator’s primary group is the Domain users group
  • Check to see if the Exchange functional level is at Native mode

You can check to ensure that you have the latest version of the configuration file by clicking on the About the Best Practices Analyzer link on the left. This should show the Configuration File Version as 2.1.26.0. (as of 3/31/2009)

  • 最近SBS团队推出了针对SBS 2003 BPA(Best Practices Analyzer, 最佳实践分析器)的更新。这次的更新主要注重对SBS 2003到SBS 2008迁移安装的预先检测,帮助用户成功完成迁移安装。

  • That's strange - the BPA says that my Exchange installation is in mixed mode, but when I check Exchange System Manager, it shows native mode.  Is something wrong with my SBS installation?

  • The main focus of the update on the SBS 2003 migration to SBS 2008 pre-installed testing, to help users install the successful completion of the relocation.
