I am testing restoring a domain controller from system state backup to different hardware in a non production environment as a sanity check for our restoration procedure.
When i run the dcdiag command I get "blank info back" and all that is displayed are two lines as follows: Domain Controller Diagnosis
Performing initial setup:
and then I am returned to the command prompt. Even when I do dcdiag /v i get the same result.
I have double checked the DNS settings and Active Directory works properly. All FSMO roles are being held by this restored Domain Controller. I am able to join test pc's to the domain without issue etc
Is this a common issue or is there something that I am missing. Thanks.
