This feature has popped up here and there for a while -- most notably with Exchange Server 2007 -- and it's now all over R2. Built on what is called the Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) engine, Microsoft has included BPAs for a variety of different areas, including AD Domain Services, DNS, IIS and Remote Desktop Services, to name a few.
