The Active Directory Cache Query tool allows you to query the local AD Cache for records that match a selected property/value pair. The query returns the records associated with the first match it finds. This tool is useful in determining if the Cache has been updated after a record has been added on the Domain Controller.
Before you can use this tool, you must have successfully integrated with Active Directory.
To query the cache:
- In the WebUI, click the Diagnostics tab.
In the left navigation pane, go to Tools > Query AD Cache.
- Select a property to match (e.g., userPrincipalName).
- Enter a value (e.g., rmushu).
In this example, if the query finds a userPrincipalName attribute with the value rmushu, the query will return all the attribute/value pairs associates with that record.
