When you run a simulation, by clicking Run Simulation on the Model Editor toolbar, System Center Capacity Planner attempts to validate the capacity model. If your capacity model is not valid because essential data is missing, Capacity Planner displays messages indicating what is required before the simulation can run. These adjustments must be made before simulation results are displayed. When the Results Summary page appears, your capacity model has been successfully validated by Capacity Planner.

A valid capacity model does not necessarily provide the optimal results. You must use your own judgment to determine what is preferred for your deployment.
