Is there a utility or script which you suggest which could be run from a workstation, pointed at a server, asking if the system is a Domain Controller? I am looking for the same kind of result as you'd see if running LDP.exe, but wanting to do so without elevated privileges. (I believe this rules out nltest and netdom, as well).

A "quick and dirty" would be to check if \\servername\sysvol  or \netlogon exists on the target server...  all users have access to that share.
