Hi,

First ping the domain name
Example: ping test.com
If you are getting proper reply mean the Domain controller is online and DNS also working fine.

You can test through Dcdiag command
dcdiag [/s:<DomainController>]
Example : dcdiag /s:test.com

Also run the Dcdiag command in the Domain Controller you will find the DC is working fine or not.
To check the DNS, run the below command
Dcdiag /test:DNS

Thanks.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
