Virtualisation Technology Architecture and Industry Comments from the Front-Lines

Just wanted to note down some really useful (and Free) Active Directory Tools that I've come across in the field over the last few weeks:

Have looksy and add to the list if you can think of more, but I would consider these 'must haves' in the Active Directory consulting world.

 • Setspn Syntax  *For those double-hop Kerboros authentication scenarios between SQL and IIS.

• Replmon

• Repadmin

• Movetree.exe

• Ldp

• Dsastat

• Clonepr

• Adsiedit

• Acldiag

• Xcacls

• Sidwkr.dll   (Sidwalker Security Administration Tools)

• Showaccs 

 • Sdcheck

• Ktpass

• Ksetup

• Getsid

• Netdiag

• Addiag

And of course the all time favourite, dcdiag, but check this little variation on a theme! 

C:\>dcdiag /a /q c:\DCDiagLog.txt   (/a = only site issues appear)  (/q = only warnings/errors appear)

This is how I like to run it as I am then able to see all in from VBSEdit inside a text file, plus only see the errors.
