Test-ComputerSecureChannel - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Short description Tests and repairs the secure channel between the local computer and its domain. Syntax Test-ComputerSecureChannel [-Repair] [-Server <string>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>] Description The Test-ComputerSecureChannel cmdlet verifies that the secure channel between the local computer and its domain is working correctly by checking the status of its trust relationships. If a connection fails, you can use the Repair parameter to try to restore it. Test-ComputerSecureChannel returns "True" if the secure channel is working correctly and "False" if it is not. This result lets you use the cmdlet in conditional statements in functions and scripts. To get more detailed test resul ts, use the Verbose parameter. This cmdlet works much like NetDom.exe. Both NetDom and Test-ComputerSecureChannel use the NetLogon service to perf orm the actions.
