in AD sites and services, some servers have the NTDS Settings under the server name some servers don't.
can someone tell me the difference.

Is there any way how to find which server is the brodgehead server without going to the properties of each server?

Thanks

all of them should have NTDS settings

if some are missing the NTDS settings it is either an OLD dc that wasn't properly decommissioned or you have a problem

Another way to find out which server is the bridgehead is to use repadmin
repadmin /bridgeheads DC_list  /verbose
More on that here:
