Testing Domain Controller Connectivity (using PowerShell)

Posted: January 24, 2012 in Powershell

I believe that the best way to improve your skill is to test and push yourself. I am currently on a mission to get a lot more comfortable with PowerShell ( as it lives up to its name, it is very POWERful).

I need to check a few domains up and running and like to keep an eye on my Domain Controllers as they are obviously the base of Active Directory. So, I decided that i needed to brush on my PowerShell skills, the easiest way to do this is to use it. Hence, I created a PowerShell script to do this for me. It has been uploaded to the Microsoft TechNet Gallery.

The real key is that all the information is built automatically by PowerShell and no modification to the script should be required.

Code below, I would recommend you download it though

    Spot on with this write-up, I actually believe this amazing site needs much more
    attention. I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!

  15. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  16. It is in point of fact a nice and useful piece of information.

    post or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    the way!
