      The DPM Configuration Analyzer (DPMCA) is a diagnostic tool you can use to evaluate important configuration settings on DPM 2007 servers. The tool scans hardware and software configurations of the DPM servers you specify, evaluates them against a set of predefined rules, and provides you with best practice suggestions that can make your DPM experience more optimal.

      You can install the DPMCA on any computer, and remotely scan a set of DPM Servers specified, with a specific user credential.

      Note: The DPMCA does not duplicate or replace the prerequisite checks performed during the setup of DPM 2007 Server or its components.
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP

      Before you install the DPMCA, you must download and install either the 32 or the 64-bit version of Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer (MBCA). To download, go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=123061&clcid=0x409.

      Note: To scan a remote computer, ensure that a firewall on the remote computer is not blocking Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) communication or the service control manager (SCM), known as Remote Service Management in the Windows Vista operating system, and that the WMI service is running on the remote computer.
