How to install and run the SharePoint (MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0) Best Practices Analyzer (BPA)

How to Install and Run Best Practice Analyzer (BPA)

1. Run the executable and extract to a folder e.g. C:\SPBPA
2. Open command prompt:
3. cd SPBPA 
4. sharepointbpa.exe -cmd analyze -substitutions SERVER_NAME name_of_your_server
Note: the ‘SERVER_NAME’ is not *your* server name, that is the syntax telling it you about to specify a server – note that text needs to be in upper case too.

Otherwise, you will got the following errors:

Error (The network path was not found) opening registry key reg:/%SERVER_NAME%/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\Secure\ConfigDB\, skipping object.
