Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer

Contributor(s): Nick Martin

Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer is a server management tool that scans server configurations and generates a report that identifies best practice violations. 

Microsoft recommends guidelines for how to configure a server; the recommendations are designed to improve performance and/or reduce security risks. Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer checks current configurations against a list of recommended configurations and generates warnings  to alert the administrator when there are deviations. In some cases, the Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer will also provide information for how to correct the violation. 

Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer is included with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. Administrators can access the Microsoft Hyper-V Best Practices Analyzer from the Server Manager console.
