The Business Analyst Server 10 SP 3 Diagnostic Utility is Available for Download

A Diagnostic Utility is available on the Resource Center to provide more insight into configuration and data issues. It points you to the component of Business Analyst Server that may not be configured correctly and could be causing technical issues. This utility is available here.

Downloading will provide a ZIP file. Extract the contents of the ZIP file to your computer. There is a folder named “Diagnostic Utility” and a Word document named “Diagnostic Utility Info.docx”. Diagnostic Utility Info.docx explains the tests in the Diagnostic Utility. The Diagnostic Utility folder contains the files that make up the Diagnostic Utililty. Right-click on BAServerDiagnosticUtility.exe and choose “Run as Administrator” to guarantee the most accurate results while using the Diagnostic Utility.

It is highly recommended to download this utility and run it before calling Technical Support. It could help reduce the amount of time of your Technical Support call or even point you to the problem and help you resolve the problem on your own.

The Diagnostic Utility was built to help resolve problems that we have encountered. In order to help improve future releases of the Diagnostic Utility, please provide feedback to Technical Support or on the Business Analyst Server Forums.

Stay tuned for a blog that walks you through a use case demo using the Business Analyst Server Diagnostic Utility.
