Best Practices Analyzer
In Windows management, best practices are guidelines that are considered the ideal way, under normal circumstances, to configure a server as defined by experts. Though 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.

The Windows Server 2012 Understand and Troubleshoot Guides (UTG) help IT administrators and architects develop awareness of key technical concepts, functionality, and troubleshooting techniques. This understanding enables a successful early adoption experience during the product evaluation phase. UTGs cover:

  • Technical overview.

  • Server role or feature installation, configuration, and management tasks.

  • Component architecture and interaction.

  • Methodology for troubleshooting.

The UTGs do not provide deployment planning content.

These Understand and Troubleshoot Guides were written for Windows Server “8” Beta, but also apply to Windows Server 2012. The following UTGs are available:
