Listing NTDS connections between domain controllers

Here’s some PowerShell you can use to list all the NTDS connections between domain controllers in an Active Directory environment:

Import-module ActiveDirectory

Get-adobject -filter {Objectclass -eq “NTDSConnection”} -searchbase “CN=Configuration,DC=contoso,DC=com” -properties distinguishedname,fromServer | fl distinguishedname,fromServer

Just replace contoso with the name of your own domain.
