Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2 will not detect SBS2008 server

I am trying to migrate from SBS 2008 to SBS 2011 but the Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2 will not detect the local SBS 2998 server. I have run the program as administrator but Start Scan and View latest report are greyed out. I have tried  entering the IP address as a remote computer but that fails too.

Help please?

You must first install Microsoft PowerShell 2.0 first, check if 2.0 version has been installed. Then run the Migration Preparation Tool directly.

This server has SP2 so Powershell 2 should be installed though I am not sure how to tell which version of PowerShell is running.

No need to run MBCA from SBS2008, it's a requirement for Migration Preparation Tool, which will invoke MBCA automatically.

Ok that's fine but just concerned it will not run. Hope it works when required by the  Migration Prep tool.

Thanks for your help.

@Gordon, just a reminder, follow the Technet migration guide and better get a full backup of SBS2008 before you migrate to 2011. Hope you get all lucks with this migrations, and finally get SBS2011 smoothly.
