This test case retrieves basic information about a domain controller and the domain it is a part of.
- Make sure to complete the prerequisites before starting this test.
- It is not necessary to have complete domain DNS resolution working for this test.
- No domain credentials are needed for this test.
How to test
- Run adcli to get domain controller info. Provide the domain controllers DNS name.
$ adcli info --domain-controller=dc.domain.example.com
- Skip this if you do not have DNS resolution working for the domain controller.
- Do it again but this time with just the domain controller IP address
$ adcli info --domain-controller=10.10.10.10
The output should contain the following information. Substitute as expected for your domain.
- The full DNS
- The short NetBIOS
- The closest
- In particular if the domain has multiple sites, then this domain controller should be the one for the site that local machine is a part of.
- Should say
domain-controller-usable = yes
- Should list the local
computer-sitefor the computer.
- Use the
--verboseargument to provide output when troubleshooting or reporting bugs.
