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 Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer - Select

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

Using Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer - Start Scan

Click on Start Scan.

Using Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer - Enter Parameters

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

Using Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer - Wait

Wait for the scan to complete.

Using MBCA - View Report

When the scan 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 on the All tab and then expand the Compliant node in order to see all of the results.

Using this tool is helpful when you want to validate that SQL is setup correctly for Configuration Manager 2012 (CM12 / SCCM 2012) prior to installing SCCM SP1 or SCCM R2.
