What type of AD errors are you seeing? You can run DCDIAG /TestAll and see what that returns with, but usually the schema is not affected unless its something really insane.

Logs will be seen under Directory Service logs. BTW why are you suspecting schema..?


so the logs for any Schema issues would be in the domain controllers Directory services logs?

is there any other place ?
