Best Practices Analyzer for Remote Desktop Services
Updated: April 27, 2010
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 Remote Desktop Services running on Windows Server® 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012 into compliance with best practices. Content in this section is most valuable to administrators who have completed a Best Practices Analyzer scan of Remote Desktop Services, and who want information about how to interpret and resolve scan results that identify areas of Remote Desktop Services that are noncompliant with best practices.
