System Admin Commands


You can use nltest to:

  • Get a list of domain controllers
  • Force a remote shutdown
  • Query the status of trust
  • Test trust relationships and the state of domain controller replication in a Windows domain
  • Force a user-account database to synchronize on Windows NT version 4.0 or earlier domain controllers

Nltest can test and reset the secure channel that the NetLogon service establishes between clients and the domain controller that logs them on. Clients using Kerberos authentication cannot use this secure channel.
