How to Use Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 to Verify System Settings
Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer (MBCA) 2.0 is a tool that helps you analyze and assess the configuration settings of your Microsoft products. It can help you identify potential security risks, performance issues, and best practices violations. MBCA 2.0 supports various Microsoft products, including Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange Server, and Dynamics AX.
In this article, we will show you how to use MBCA 2.0 to verify the system settings of your Dynamics AX 2012 installation. You will need to download and install the MBCA 2.0 tool and the Dynamics AX 2012 models from the Microsoft website. Then, you will be able to run a scan and view the results in a report.
Step 1: Download and Install MBCA 2.0 and Dynamics AX 2012 Models
To use MBCA 2.0, you need to download and install the tool from the Microsoft Download Center. The tool is compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
After installing MBCA 2.0, you also need to download and install the Dynamics AX 2012 models that correspond to the components of your Dynamics AX installation. The models are available from the Microsoft Download Center. The models include:
Dynamics AX Application Object Server (AOS)
Dynamics AX Enterprise Portal
Dynamics AX Reporting Services Extensions
Dynamics AX Analysis Services Extensions
Dynamics AX Workflow
Dynamics AX Help Server
You need to install the models on the same computer where the corresponding Dynamics AX component is installed.
Step 2: Run a Scan with MBCA 2.0
After installing MBCA 2.0 and the Dynamics AX models, you can run a scan to check the configuration settings of your Dynamics AX components. To do this:
Open MBCA 2.0. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0.
In the Select a product list, select the model for a Dynamics AX component that you want to scan.
Click Start Scan.
Enter the name or IP address of the computer where the Dynamics AX component is installed.
If prompted, enter the credentials of an administrator account on that computer.
Wait for the scan to complete.
Repeat steps 2-6 for each Dynamics AX component that you want to scan.
Step 3: View the Scan Results in a Report
After running a scan with MBCA 2.0, you can view the results in a report that shows the configuration settings of your Dynamics AX components and compares them with the Microsoft-recommended settings[^1^]. The report also provides guidance on how to fix any issues or deviations from the best practices.
To view the report:
In MBCA 2.0, click View Reports.
Select the scan that you want to view from the list of scans.
Click View Report.
The report will open in your web browser. You can browse through the report sections and see the details of each configuration setting.
You can also export the report as an HTML or XML file for further analysis or sharing. aa16f39245
