Retrieving Active Directory Attribute Modification Information
Many a times, we may be required to verify the date /time that an attribute in a object example user account has changed and where is the Site that it was changed.
To do this, the following command can be used
repadmin /showobjmeta DCname "<DN of the user>" >c:\<username>.txt
The command will output the information into a text file with the user's name. A sample of the output is as below. With this you will be able to retrieve the change originated from which DC.
This is extremely good for enterprise with multiple DCs and when time comes for some CSI work to be done, you will know when and where to look.
