Best Practices Analyzer for Hyper-V


Updated: October 19, 2015

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server Technical Preview

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 can indicate server configurations that can result in poor performance, poor reliability, unexpected conflicts, increased security risks, or other potential problems.

The Best Practices Analyzer scans your computer using rules based on these best practices and reports the results. Each best practice rule includes details about how to comply with the rule. This section documents these rules to help you understand the best practices that apply to Hyper-V, as well interpret results when a scan finds conditions that don't comply with best practices.

For more details about Best Practices Analyzer and scans, see Best Practices Analyzer.

Hyper-V lets you run multiple operating systems at the same time on one physical computer, by running each one in a virtual machine. Virtual machines can help you use your computing resources more efficiently and flexibly. For more about Hyper-V, see Hyper-V.
