Active Directory Question

Hi guys,

Happy thanks giving to all of you in advanced.

I am suspecting that there is a kind of a problem with our active directory.

It also might be related to replication.

Ok we have two 2003 servers and they are both domain controllers, and the rest of the servers are only members.

I am not sure what my boss meant when he told me that he keeps making changes to some users, and after a while he finds those changes undone.

I checked all the events, and to see if there is something wrong with the replication services in both of them and did not find any.

So is there a way or utility that I can use to diagnose the active directory and make sure that everything is running the way it should be, and then gives me a report that I present to my boss at the end?

Thanks a lot guys

    you should ask him, what he is changing for users.
    maybe he tries to change a policy controlled setting on a desktop? :)
