This is nice, because we all know when you scan your enterprise for the DNS tests in can be a bit verbose....


New options have been added to the Dcdiag.exe Domain Name System (DNS) tests. These new options are /x and /xsl:xslfile.xsl or /xsl:xsltfile.xslt. They generate XML tags when the tests are run with the /test:dns option. You can use this new output mechanism to more easily parse the verbose log that the DNS tests generate.

To direct the XML output file to XMLLog.xml, use the /x option. For example:

dcdiag /test:dns /v /e /x:XMLLog.xml

Note: The /x: option only works with the /test:dns option.

To add the processing instructions that reference the specified style sheet, use the /xsl:xslfile.xsl or /xsl:xsltfile.xslt option. For example:

dcdiag /test:dns /v /e /x:XMLLog.xml; /xsl:xslfile.xsl

dcdiag /test:dns /v /e /x:XMLLog.xml; /xsl:xsltfile.xslt

Note: The /xsl:xslfile.xsl or /xsl:xsltfile.xslt option only works with the /test:dns /x:XMLLog.xml option.
