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?

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 /?

Open in new window

dcdiag /?

Open in new window


Some explanation of each is here:
