Win32_NTDomain class

The Win32_NTDomain WMI class represents a Windows domain.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties. Properties and methods are in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Members

The Win32_NTDomain class has these types of members:

Properties

The Win32_NTDomain class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

ClientSiteName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name of the site where the domain controller is configured. This value can be NULL.

CreationClassName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: CIM_Key

Name of the class or subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with other key properties of the class, this property allows all instances of the class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.

This property is inherited from CIM_System.

DcSiteName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name of the site where the domain controller is located. This value can be NULL.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

DNSForestName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name of the root of the DNS tree.

DomainControllerAddress
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Address of the discovered domain controller.

DomainControllerAddressType
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only

Type of address specified in the DomainControllerAddress property.

DS_INET_ADDRESS (1)

DS_NETBIOS_ADDRESS (2)

DomainControllerName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Computer name for the discovered domain controller.

DomainGUID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Globally unique identifier (GUID) of the domain controller. This property is 0 (zero) if the domain controller does not have a GUID.

DomainName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name of the domain.

Example: microsoft.com

DSDirectoryServiceFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain controller is a directory service server.

DSDnsControllerFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the Domain Controller Name is in DNS format.

Example: www.mynode.com or 135.5.33.19

DSDnsDomainFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the DomainName value is in DNS format.

DSDnsForestFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the DNSForestName value is in Domain Name System (DNS) format.

DSGlobalCatalogFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain controller is a Global Catalog server for the DNSForestName value.

DSKerberosDistributionCenterFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain controller is a Kerberos Key Distribution Center for the domain.

DSPrimaryDomainControllerFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain controller is the Primary Domain Controller.

DSTimeServiceFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain is running the Windows Time service.

DSWritableFlag
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the domain controller hosts a writeable DS or security accounts manager (SAM).

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

Date and time the object was installed. This property does not need a value to indicate that the object is installed. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Override ("Name"), Key

Label by which the object is known.

NameFormat
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Format to generate the system name—using the subclass heuristic.

This property is inherited from CIM_System.

PrimaryOwnerContact
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

How the primary system owner can be reached (for example, phone number or email address).

This property is inherited from CIM_System.

PrimaryOwnerName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Name of the primary system owner.

This property is inherited from CIM_System.

Roles
Data type: string array
Access type: Read/write

An array of strings that specify the roles the computer system plays in the IT environment. Values are defined by the IT environment in which the computer system resides. For example, for an instance of a networking system, this property might contain the string, "Switch" or "Bridge".

This property is inherited from CIM_System.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Current status of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

OK ("OK")

Error ("Error")

Degraded ("Degraded")

Unknown ("Unknown")

Pred Fail ("Pred Fail")

Starting ("Starting")

Stopping ("Stopping")

Service ("Service")

Stressed ("Stressed")

NonRecover ("NonRecover")

No Contact ("No Contact")

Lost Comm ("Lost Comm")

Remarks

The Win32_NTDomain class is derived from CIM_System. You can use this class to list all of the domains that can be discovered from the local computer. However, the number of domains that the provider can discover is limited by permissions, trust relationships, and network latency. To discover to which domain a particular computer belongs, you can query the Win32_ComputerSystem instance on that computer, and then check the Domain property.

Examples

The List Domain Information Using WMI VBScript code sample on TechNet Gallery uses Win32_NTDomain to retrieve information about domains discovered on the network.

The following PowerShell code sample describes how to query for Win32_NTDomain.


get-wmiobject | win32_ntDomain

On a Windows Server 2008 VM-based test system, the previous code produces the following output:

ClientSiteName          : Default-First-Site-Name
DcSiteName              : Default-First-Site-Name
Description             : GKTRAIN
DnsForestName           : gktrain.net
DomainControllerAddress : \\10.10.1.61
DomainControllerName    : \\DC1
DomainName              : GKTRAIN
Roles                   :
Status                  : OK
