Who is suffering from Active Directory Troubleshooting headache? : This tool is for you!


Hi friends!,

When I have some AD troubleshooting issues, I apply generally some practices and follow some steps to diagnose the AD health like using dcdiag, repadmin and netdom tools.

You have also to consult different consoles (AD Users and Computers, AD Sites and Services, etc.) to verify some aspects like the AD topology.

It is, in some cases, a real nightmare and the Microsoft IT Environment Scanner is an excellent tool that could be used to do all diagnostic tasks.

You can download it here. this tool assesses your AD infrastructure by analyzing the following services:

  • Configuration of sites and subnets in Active Directory
  • Replication of Active Directory, the file system, and SYSVOL shared folders
  • Name resolution by the Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Configuration of the network adapters of all domain controllers, DNS servers, and e-mail servers running Microsoft Exchange Server
  • Health of the domain controllers
  • Configuration of the Network Time Protocol (NTP) for all domain controllers

After installation on any computer joined to the domain, launch it to discover its beauty.

To understand the different analyzed services, try to consult the detailed generated report.

A very useful tool, Enjoy it!
