Best Practices Analyzer Tool for Team Foundation Server
This document provides guidelines for installing and using Microsoft Team Foundation Server Best Practices Analyzer. The Best Practices Analyzer tool for Team Foundation Server programmatically collects settings and values from several data repositories.

Proactively verify that the deployment configuration is set according to recommended best practices.
Report all settings that differ from the default settings.
