Interesting link for anyone working on integration projects around BizTalk 2006. Microsoft have just released a Best Practices Analyzer. Here’s the blurb:
The Best Practices Analyzer performs configuration level verification,
by reading and reporting only. For example, the Best Practices Analyzer gathers data
from Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes, Microsoft SQL Server databases,
registry entries, and other parts of your deployment, and uses the gathered data to
determine whether best practices are being followed. The Best Practices Analyzer does
not modify any system settings, and is therefore not a self-tuning tool.
