DCDiad to check DNS

Dear All,
I have DNS server integrated with Active Directory windows 2003.

I have more than 95 domain controller.

I have 60 sites

I need help to find a command by using DCDiad (or any other command) which I can run it from the root to check all DNS servers and result me only with Errors and problems which related to the servers.

Thanks

You could run: "dcdiag /test:dns /e /ferr:dnslog.txt"

The e-switch will test all DNS servers in the enterprise.

Netdiag is the good command to check the DNS

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Hi,

I use:
dcdiag /test:dns /e /ferr:dnslog.txt

Its give me a really big file, does there a way to arrange or filter this file to be readable?

Thanks

Well it should only write fatal errors to the logfile (/ferr). If it's huge then it might be a problem with your DNS.

If you got 95 DC's and all is running DNS then the file should be huge if you redirects all tests to a output file (/f:logfile.txt).

The output is kinda messy, but at the end of the file there is a summary of all tests (need /f switch instead of /ferr) that is the key to see what servers having problems. Then just use the CTRL+F to navigate to the section this server is tested.
