        The BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer performs configuration-level verification by reading and reporting only. The Best Practices Analyzer gathers data from different information sources, such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes, SQL Server databases, and registry entries. The Best Practices Analyzer uses the data to evaluate the deployment configuration. The Best Practices Analyzer does not modify any system settings, and is not a self-tuning tool.
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 3

        • You must have Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006, BizTalk Server 2006 R2, or BizTalk Server 2010 installed on the computer on which you install the Best Practices Analyzer.
        • You must use an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group to run the Best Practices Analyzer.
        • You must be a local administrator on every computer in the BizTalk group and you must be a member of the SSO Administrators group.
        • You may need to explicitly set some Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) permissions before you can use the Best Practices Analyzer in a distributed environment, where SQL Server is not installed on the same computer as BizTalk Server.
          This is because when the Best Practices Analyzer tries to connect to a remote computer running SQL Server, WMI may not have sufficient access to determine whether SQL Server Agent is running. This may result in incorrect best practices evaluations.
