Hi Readers,

Sharing a script that can be used for checking AD Health, This script is similar to one of my other health Check scripts that we use for exchnage.

https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Exchange-2010-Health-Check-7be55c87

https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Exchange-2010-Health-Check-7be55c87

This will check below:

Ping,Netlogon,NTDS,DNS,DCdiag Test(Replication,sysvol,Services)

Just download the zip file from below link & run the batch file using Admin privileges.

Below is the report that will arrive in your mailbox.

Change Variables in .ps1 as needed:

$smtphost = “SMTP.labtest.com”

$from = “DoNotReply@labtest.com”

$to = “Sukhija@labtest.com”

  1. Thank you for sharing this informative resource.
    Though, in my environment while need to check active directory health and running status, I use Lepide Active Directory Health Monitoring tool(http://www.lepide.com/lepideauditor/health-monitoring.html ) that works well for me and provides immediate report if any error or non-working of any component like NTDS, DNS, or DHCP interrupts the overall working environment.
    However, I would like to give a try to this trick you have mentioned in blog post.

  3. This script you did is great!!

    Is there a way to Schedule this script? The last option I would use is Schedule task.

  4. Hi Vikas, Any Idea how can I include the date in the output of the output body of the email. I wanted to be sure about the Run date of this report too.
