Today MS Exchange Team announced issuing Office 365 Best Practices Analyzer available! Take into consideration – this works with Exchange 2013 Hybrid deployment (Another good reason to upgrade your Exchange 2010 Hybrid to 2013, right?!).
You can reach it from your Office 365 admin center – Tools – “Check your on-premises Exchange Server with the Office 365 Best Practices Analyzer“.
In order to run the checks you’ll need to meet the requirements listed below. Your environment will be automatically verified if you are ready to run the checks when you download the tool.
- Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012 running Exchange Server 2013
- Internet Explorer 9.0 or later
- PowerShell v3.0 or later
- Windows RM 3.0 or later
- Azure Active Directory PowerShell module
- Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant
- Screen Resolution: 1024×768 minimum
This comes to be the 4th in line of diagnostics and management tools for Office365, along with OnRamp Autochecks (which runs checks to help determine the status of your on-premises or cloud configuration), Office 365 Connectivity Analyzer, and Office 365 Best Practices Analyzer for on-premises PC.
And for previous versions of Microsoft Exchange we can use a refreshed version of ExBPA.
