The Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 2010 Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) Tool is designed for administrators who want to determine the overall health of their Forefront UAG computers and to diagnose current problems. The tool scans the configuration settings of the local Forefront UAG computer and reports issues that do not conform to the recommended best practices.

  • The Forefront UAG BPA is a diagnostic tool that automatically performs specific tests on configuration data collected on the local Forefront UAG computer from a hierarchy of administration COM objects, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes, the system registry, files on disk, and the Domain Name System (DNS) settings.

    The resulting report details critical configuration issues, potential problems, and information about the local computer. By following the recommendations of the tool, administrators can achieve greater performance, scalability, reliability, and uptime.

    Important!: This BPA Tool is designed to support Forefront UAG only. To download the BPA Tool for Forefront TMG, see Forefront TMG BPA Tool.
