In this blog post I will show you how to use this tool and the results that you should expect to see.

Start by launching Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0.

Using MBCA - Select

Select System Center 2012 SP1 – Configuration Analyzer from the drop down box.

Using MBCA - Start Scan

Click Start Scan.

Using MBCA - Enter Parameters

Enter in the server name (in my case it is cm12-cm4) and then click Start Scan.

Using MBCA - Wait

Wait for the scan to complete.

Using MBCA - View Report

When it finishes you should see a report similar to the one above. Thankfully, in my lab there are no non-compliant settings.

Using MBCA - All Tab

Click the All tab, and then expand the Compliant node in order to see all of the results.

Using this tool is useful when you want to validate that SQL is setup correctly for CM12 prior to installing SCCM SP1 or SCCM R2.
