Microsoft IT Environemnt Health Scanner

An interesting download available from Microsoft is the IT Environment Health Scanner.

It is a very useful tool to run in an enterprise before you start a Lync installation. It is a concern that the installation of Lync, with it's dependency on a functioning AD, DNS and CA and the changes made to the AD Schema as part of the installation will throw up pre-existing issues that will either affect the deployment of Lync or worse will occur after the deployment and the blame and responsibility for fixing any issues will be put on Lync and the Lync engineer. It is a wise move to check the existing IT environment before starting the deployment and showing the results to the customer.
