How do I view which domains are in my forest?

I have 2 domains on my LAN (and two domain controllers - one DC for each domain). They are configured to have mutual trust for each other. I would like to know if both domains are in the same forest or not. They are Windows 2008 servers.

When you log onto you AD sever you cal click on start>administrative tools>active directory domains and trusts and you should be able to see it there.

Use "netdom query fsmo" without the quotes in an elevated command prompt will show you the FSMO roles on the DCs.

Hey you have two options for this. First you can have a look at this link. It should help you at some cases.

Do update, Did you use AD domains and trusts on the DC having the Schema/Domain naming master FSMO? AS this FSMO roles are always on the forest DCs.?


"netdom query fsmo" without the quotes in an elevated command prompt will show you the FSMO roles on the DCs.

Or you can use a script like:
