The Risk and Health Assessment Program for Exchange Server – Scoping Tool v1.2 has recently been made available to download.
This download package is intended for Microsoft Premier Customers Only. This package includes all of the scoping tools necessary to prepare and qualify your environment to receive a Risk and Health Assessment Program for Exchange Server (ExRAP).
“The Risk and Health Assessment Program for Microsoft Exchange Server (ExRAP) Scoping Tool is used to determine if an environment meets the minimum requirements to conduct an ExRAP engagement. It is vital that any issues identified by the Scoping Tool be resolved during this scoping process. An ExRAP engagement may be canceled unless all pre-requisites and requirements are satisfied.
A critical component in performing an ExRAP is the ability to accurately and reliably collect information from the entire Exchange organization. The ExRAP Scoping Tool validates required network connectivity and access to all Exchange servers in the organization. The majority of the potential issues it can identify are not directly related to Exchange itself, but are instead typically due to network communication restrictions (i.e. firewalls or router ACLs), base operating system issues or lack of permissions. The Scoping Tool provides steps to troubleshoot the most common causes of these issues. A failure to resolve these issues may delay or prevent the ExRAP request process from proceeding.”
