Description of the Netdiag /fix Switch

This article was previously published under Q219289
This article describes the Netdiag /fix switch. This switch may be useful for correcting issues with Domain Name Server (DNS) and domain controller tests.
The following tests are described:

DNS Test

If the computer is a domain controller, Netdiag verifies all the DNS entries in the Netlogon.dns file to determine if they are correct and updates the appropriate entries if there is a problem.

Domain Controller Tests

If the domain GUID cached in a local computer on your primary domain is different than the domain GUID saved in a domain controller, Netdiag tries to update the domain GUID on the local computer.
