Update: AAD Connect Network and Name Resolution Test


Update: This tool has a new shortlink: http://aka.ms/aadnetwork

Since the tool passed the 500 download mark a few weeks ago, I've started getting more questions (internal and external) about a few of the tests and checks.  So, I decided to update/refine them to hopefully provide better guidance.

The big changes:

If you weren't aware of it before, you can run just a single test as well:

You can go find the updated version at http://aka.ms/aadnetwork.  Save someone some trouble today.

    Love the script but get this error at the end. Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path ‘HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\PowerShell\Transcription\’ because it does not exist.

    1. I updated the script and tested again. Get-ItemProperty fails and doesn’t honor -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue if the parent node is not present. So, in this case, if HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\PowerShell\Transcription had existed, the Get-ItemProperty query for the EnableTranscripting would be silent regardless of whether it exists or not. If HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\PowerShell\Transcription doesn’t exist, the call fails with the exception to the screen. I wrapped it in a try/catch block, which seems to have cleared the error. Thanks for finding this one! A cookie to you!
