SQL Server 2005 Best Practices Analyzer (February 2007 CTP)–Now Available

The much-anticipated SQL Server 2005 Best Practices Analyzer is now available on the Microsoft Download Center.  Thank you all for your input on this blog.  Thank you to the MVPs who have given me early feedback on the utility before it officially went live.  Adam Machanic and I had an email exchange last night covering some issues that I expect to be encountered by everybody.  Pat Wright has also sent me some good feedback.  I will compile these into a known-issues list and post it on this blog.

I will be travelling quite a bit in March… so for all future suggestions, please submit them on Microsoft Connect.

Still to come… the SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports… so stay tuned 🙂

    Can you confirm that this release does not address T-SQL “best Practices” ?

    If so are you working on this for a future release ?
