Powershell and Active Directory: Get Your Active Directory Forest and Domain Information using Powershell.

Hi,

Sometime a situation comes when you want to know about your Active Directory Infrastructure.  That what is your AD Forest Name is, how many replica server do you have in your company,how many domain sites do you have  etc. etc.

When you get Answers you want to document all the above things for your future reference. Today a situation arise that i want to know answers about the above questions.

I know i can get all the answers by using Active Directory Module. But then i think if someone else need the same information, then what he will do?,he will do the same or he ask someone else in his team and waiting for their replies.

Then i think, why not to script it, so that everyone can get benefitted from it,.

So i write a simple script to done this task. Before running the script make sure you have RSAT tools installed.
