    I am running a simple command

    Dunk> Get-ADDomainController -Filter *

    But getting the error

    Get-ADDomainController : Directory object not found
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-ADDomainController -Filter *
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (:) [Get-ADDomainController], ADIdentityNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ActiveDirectoryCmdlet:Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.ADIdentityNotFoundException,Microsoft.A

    What can be the problem. I saw the same command being used in different KBs and Forums, without anyissues.

    You have the AD cmdlets loaded obviously. What rights do you have in the domain and are you running PowerShell with elevated privileges? is the connection from your machine to the domain controller corrupted – use Test-ComputerSecureChannel on the machine you are using

      Sorry for the late reply.

      1. If I use the Get-ADDomainController with the '-Server' parameter. i am able to get the information of all the domain controllers. I believe that this would mean that I have the necessary permissions.

      2. Test-ComputerSecureChannel returns the value True. And also if I run this computer with the name of the different Domain Controllers it is returning True.

      It is very puzzling.
