repadmin and dcdiag syntax

what would the commands be to get a full (unfiltered) list of all issues for repadmin and dcdiag on a domain controller, and the results written out to a *.txt file?

Are both tools already installed on domain controllers, or would you need to install anything previous to running the commands?

Is it intended that if you have 5 domain controllers in a domain, that you run the commands over all 5 domain controllers, or can you just run it over 1 DC in the domain?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Regarding repadmin and dcdiag, there isnt really one command that will tell you everything.

Both tools have a set of arguments which can be passed and depending on the argument, you will see different datasets.  Both tools can be run against all servers serially though.

Check out the usage using
repadmin /?

dcdiag /?
