This test case retrieves basic information about a domain controller and the domain it is a part of.


  1. Make sure to complete the prerequisites before starting this test.
  2. It is not necessary to have complete domain DNS resolution working for this test.
  3. No domain credentials are needed for this test.

How to test

  1. Run adcli to get domain controller info. Provide the domain controllers DNS name.
    $ adcli info
    Skip this if you do not have DNS resolution working for the domain controller.
  2. Do it again but this time with just the domain controller IP address
    $ adcli info --domain-controller=

Expected Results

The output should contain the following information. Substitute as expected for your domain.

  • The full DNS domain-name (like:
  • The short NetBIOS domain-short (like: DOMAIN)
  • The closest domain-controller (like:
    • In particular if the domain has multiple sites, then this domain controller should be the one for the site that local machine is a part of.
  • Expected domain-controller-flags
  • Should say domain-controller-usable = yes
  • Should list the local computer-site for the computer.


  • Use the --verbose argument to provide output when troubleshooting or reporting bugs.
