Microsoft’s Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) for SBS is an excellent way to identify potential issues that can affect server performance and reliability. Refer to my previous blog post on how to install BPA for SBS 2011 Standard and Essentials.
The BPA report may identify both errors and warnings.
Please keep in mind that some of the warnings are simply that – warnings – and that not every warning needs to be fixed. For example, back in June, Microsoft identified an invalid BPA warning that they posted with a recommendation to ignore the warning. The invalid warning is:
The /EWS virtual directories maxRequestLength doesn’t match the get-transportconfig MaxSendSize
Furthermore, if you attempt to implement the change recommended by this BPA warning, you will create other problems, such as problems when adding a new user (click here).
