Best Practice Analyzer for WSUS

Greetings WSUS users,

Some of you might not know that Windows Server 2008 R2 has released an update that added new Best Practice Rules to various Server Manager roles, including one for Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For more information on Best Practice Analyzer, please read this interesting blog from our Windows Server colleagues. What is BPA you ask? Well, you can use the Best Practices Analyzer to scan a server that is running WSUS. A BPA scan of WSUS can help you determine whether WSUS was properly installed and configured on your server. Scan results are displayed as a list of issues that you can sort by severity, and results include recommendations for fixing issues and links to instructions. No configuration changes are made by running the scan. Download the update and run it today!

If you have any questions about WSUS BPA usage or think about new rules to add, please share them with us in our TechNet forum.
