[SDP 5] [c59475f9-5d38-4f3c-8f2e-dd633fac725f] SharePoint PFE Reports Diagnostic (SPPfeReports)

Summary
This SharePoint Pfe Reports (SPPfeReports) Diagnostic detects relevant logs and certain problematic conditions that may exist in the configuration of the servers running Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013.

Important The problematic conditions are checked only on the server on which this manifest is run. To make sure that you have maximum coverage, we recommend that you run SPPfeReport on each computer in the Microsoft SharePoint farm.

This article explains the operation of this diagnostic package.

Required permissions

he rules in the diagnostic package leverage the SharePoint Windows PowerShell snap-in to get information about your farm. Therefore, the account that is used to run this diagnostic package must either be the farm account or have been given the required permissions through the Add-SPShellAdmin command. Note that the farm account is the account under which the timer service and central administration site's application pool are running.

Some rules in this diagnostic package also must have local server administrative privileges to leverage remote and local administrative tools and also to access secure system locations such as the registry. Use the following table to reference the permissions that are required for each rule.
