Installing System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer

By Garth Jones

This blog post is a continuation of my previous post about Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 where I am answering a query that originally appeared in the Configuration Manager 2012 (CM12) forums about how to use this tool.

If you recall, I said that the key to remember about using Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 (MBCA) is that you also need to install the MBCA pack too. In my case, it will be System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer.

After finishing the installation of MBCA on my CM12 site server, I download System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer from this site:

Next, double-click on SC2012SP1CA.msi

Installing SCCA - Setup Wizard

Click Next.

Installing SCCA - License Agreement

Select I accept the terms… then click Next.

Installing SCCA - Install

Click Install.

Installing SCCA - Finish

Click Finish.

Tomorrow, in my next and last blog post in this series, I will show you how to use Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 with the System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer (SCCA) module, and what results you can expect to see from it.
