ksetup /dumpstate




The output of this command includes the default realm (the domain that the computer is a member of) and all the realms that are defined on this computer. The following is included for each realm:

  • All the Key Distribution Centers (KDCs) that are associated with this realm

  • All the set realm flags for this realm

  • The KDC password

This command does not display the domain name that is specified by DNS detection or by the command ksetup /domain.

This command does not display the computer password that is set by using the command ksetup /setcomputerpassword.

Ksetup produces the same output as ksetup /dumpstate.
