Best Practices Analyzer for Application Server

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

In Windows management, best practices are guidelines that are considered the ideal way, under normal circumstances, to configure a server as defined by experts. While best practice violations, even critical ones, are not necessarily problematic, they indicate server configurations that can result in poor performance, poor reliability, unexpected conflicts, increased security risks, or other potential problems.

Topics in this section can help you bring the Application Server role in Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2008 R2 into compliance with best practices. Content in this section is most valuable to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of the Application Server role, and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of the Application Server role that are noncompliant with best practices.
