Diagnostic Tests reference

This section provides a description of the diagnostic tests available in Foglight for Active Directory:

DNS Entries diagnostic

Verifies that the DNS entries registered by a specific domain controller can be found on the DNS servers. It finds and parses the following file for pertinent DNS information (which should work for non-MS DNS references): C:\Windows\System32\config\netlogon.dns. This functionality is mostly redundant with the reported ‘isSrvRegistered’ value for each given domain controller.

DNS Partners diagnostic

Verifies that the DC can find the DNS records of each of its inbound replication partners on the DNS server that it is using. To accomplish this, the test works in unison with LDAP and NSLOOKUP utilities.

File Replication diagnostic

Allows you to check the presence of any file on other domain controllers. This test verifies that the files stored on all shares are physically the same files. It verifies the file size in bytes, file date, and file name between the source server and all other selected servers.

To run this test, select the replication partners and enter the name of the file or folder you want confirmed. The test continues through all DCs, recording errors as it processes differences that are found.

Select Replication Partners

Select this button to select the servers where tests should compare the most recent update with that of the target server. Selecting this button displays the Select Target dialog which provides a list of replication partners to choose from.

File Name

Enter the name of the file or folder you want to compare.

Enter in the following format:


Compare File Size

This check box is selected by default indicating that the diagnostic test is to compare the file size. Clear this check box if you do not wish to compare the file size.

Compare File Date

This check box is selected by default indicating that the diagnostic is to compare the file date. Clear this check box if you do not wish to compare the file date.
