Hi,

Is it possible to export the content of all AD database into text file, so that I can search for particular old IP address that was used by the previous DC ?

Yes, use this command:

ldifde -f OUTPUT.LDF

It will export the whole AD into a text file. Look at this Mirosoft KB55636 article.

Thanks for the reply, however, that tools only applies for:

Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition (32-bit x86)
Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 1
Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 2
Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 3
Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
Microsoft Windows 2000 Standard Edition
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition (32-bit x86)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86)

I forgot to mention that my AD is Windows Server 2008 Sp2 Std x86

No, that's not a problem. Try it and look at the output. I just exported the AD on one of our W2008R2 DCs without any problem.
