NTDSUtil – Windows CMD Command

Active Directory Domain Services management, database/metadata maintenance, etc.

Run NTDSUtil from an elevated command prompt. NTDSUtil.exe is built into Windows Server 2008 /R2. It is available if you have the AD DS or the AD LDS server role installed or if you install the Active Directory Domain Services Tools that are part of the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).

This tool is intended for use by experienced administrators, NTDSUtil is very powerful, but it’s also dangerous – some commands will require Active Directory to be taken offline.

At the ntdsutil: prompt, type HELP any point to see the available commands/subcommands.
