Copied from an internal email from a PM on the team, Jakub –
I’m pleased to announce that SQL Server 2012 Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) has been released and is available for download at http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=29302.
The Microsoft SQL Server 2012 BPA is a diagnostic tool that
performs the following functions:
Gathers information about a Server and a
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 instance installed on that Server.
Determines if the configurations are set
according to the recommended best practices.
Reports on all configurations, indicating
settings that differ from recommendations.
Indicates potential problems in the installed
instance of SQL Server.
Recommends solutions to potential problems.
