Best Practice Analyzer for WSUS

Greetings WSUS users,

Some of you might not know that Windows Server 2008 R2 has released an update that added new Best Practice Rules to various Server Manager roles, including one for Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For more information on Best Practice Analyzer, please read this interesting blog from our Windows Server colleagues. What is BPA you ask? Well, you can use the Best Practices Analyzer to scan a server that is running WSUS. A BPA scan of WSUS can help you determine whether WSUS was properly installed and configured on your server. Scan results are displayed as a list of issues that you can sort by severity, and results include recommendations for fixing issues and links to instructions. No configuration changes are made by running the scan. Download the update and run it today!

If you have any questions about WSUS BPA usage or think about new rules to add, please share them with us in our TechNet forum.

    I've been checking this blog for a month or more waiting to see the announcement that Office 2010 has been added.  I just checked my WSUS server today and noticed Office 2010 is now there.  What is the deal?  Did it get announced here?  When was it added?  If it wasn't announced here, what is the point of reviewing the blog if it isn't going to be a reliable source of information?  Is there somewhere I can go which is more reliable?

    I find the check for WSUS being installed on some other drive than the system drive a little archaic now. My WSUS is on a VM machine on a very fast host and I really doubt having WSUS on the same drive as the system really isn't of any concern anymore.
