System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer

This is a handy tool that I strongly recommend, to make sure that your System Center 2012 SP1 deployment is according to best practice.
To get started: Download and install the Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer (pre-req for System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer) from here:

Second, download and install System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer from here:

How to use it?

Simply connect to the machines that have any of the SC components install, type in the credentials for accessing them and perform a scan. This will in the end return a report with tips for optimization, and detect any configuration that is not best practice.

I did a quick test on my VMM server to see if I had missed anything. Luckily, since this is my bread and butter, everything was in order – and the tool provided me with great information of things I should already be aware of.

Looking forward to test this on the rest of the components.
