I have installed SERVER PERFORMANCE ADVISOR Ver 2 on a test server (Win. 20003 server).  I want to create a baseline of my production servers using this tool.  However, I don't want to installl the tool on the prod servers. Is it possible to target a remote server from Server Perf advisor.

Please provide step-by-step if possible,

Thanks,
Dan

dteshome,

I have used that utility in the past (though I don't currently have it installed) and am not aware of a way to remotely baseline.  Honestly, baselines should be done locally.  When you start doing remote baselining, you add variables into the mix (networking, etc.) which may skew your data.

Thanks, Justin. I was hoping for mor input from others also!  Since I am only interested in CPU, Memory, Disk, etc.  I believe I should be able to get baseline remotely.  

Based on your advice, however, I attempted to install the software locally (installed the pre-req SWs, s.s, .NET 1.1, etc.) but the installation just hung"  Worked fine on standalone Server, but on SQL Server 2005 (win 2003 std cluster) cluster nodes, it just hung.  So, I still need to be able to do remote baseline.

Thanks,
Dan

Are you willing to change utilities, or are you only able to use SPA?
