Foglight for Active Directory rules Running diagnostic tests Managing Active Directory metrics

FSMO Best Practices diagnostic

Tests to determine whether the target domain controllers are following FSMO best practice guidelines.

To run this test, select the best practices to be verified. All best practices are selected by default.

Verify that the PDC Emulator and RID Master roles are on the same domain controller

When selected, the test check if both of these roles are located on the same domain controller.

Verify that the Schema Master and the Domain Naming Master roles are on the same domain controller

When selected, the test checks if the Schema Master is also holding the Domain Naming Master role.

Verify that the Infrastructure Master is not a Global Catalog

When selected, the test checks if any domain controllers that hold the Infrastructure Master also hosts a copy of the Global Catalog.

GPO Sync diagnostic

Compares the file and directory version of each group policy from the selected DCs to the version found on the PDC Emulator. This test shows if the following GPO properties are inconsistent across any of the selected DCs in the forest:

Hotfix and Service Pack diagnostic

Uses the remote registry service to enumerate all installed hot fixes and service packs on a domain controller. This is then compared to what the user selected to determine if any service packs or hot fixes are missing. If any service packs or hot fixes are missing, the test will return as a failure and provide a list of the missing entries.

When you run this test, enter a service pack number and a Microsoft® Knowledgebase Article Number.

Service Packs

Using the appropriate box, enter the service pack number to be verified.

Hot Fixes

Enter the hotfix(es) to be verified. When entering multiple hot fixes, enter as a comma separated string
(e.g., KB981391, KB218436)

Checks all replication links for any errors that occurred in the last replication attempt.
