BPA Scan Has Failed

Hi

we have an SBS 2008 R" server and whenever we try to run the BPA we get the error "The Best Practices Analyzer scan has failed. The directory name is invalid".

Googled it but coming up empty for this exact error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?

Apologies, I made a mistake in my original post. This is Server 2008 R2 and not SBS.

I have looked but I can't see of a way to uninstall\reinstall. The BPA is integrated in to the MMC.

Did you download the bpa or was this something that was always there in the mmc?

It's integrated within the MMC, its in the Server Manager Roles/Features.

Download the standalone and see if you can run it that way.

The BPA in the MMC is for all the different services which is more than the standalone one does. I will try it but cannot see it will fix the MMC version, the MMC is the most useful option.

Thanks and I will report back.

No I had not, although on this server we have not made changes to the way scripts are executed I will configure a GPO to do this - Just in case.

Thanks for this
