HP Digital Sender 9100c - Determining the LDAP Server's Hostname or IP Address in Active Directory for Digital Senders

All Domain Controllers in a given domain contain a copy of the Active Directory database. Typically, all Domain Controllers run the LDAP service and will be listening for LDAP queries on port 389. In some multi-domain environments, however, the Digital Sender should use the Domain's Global Catalog Server. The Global Catalog Server contains information about other Domains in the Domain forest and listens for LDAP queries on port 3268.
To determine which Domain Controller a specific Windows 2000 or XP Client used to log onto the Domain, you can look at the system variable "LOGONSERVER" by typing the following command at the Command Prompt:
C:\echo %LOGONSERVER%
Figure : Finding the Name of the Domain Controller
  note:
All of the commands listed in this section should preferably be performed from the server.
The LOGONSERVER environment variable contains the hostname of the Domain Controller. To obtain the IP address for any hostname, use the "nslookup" command. For example, to find the IP address for a server with the hostname DC1, type the following command at the command prompt:
C:\nslookup DC1
In some cases, nslookup may not work, but the ping command will also return the IP address for a specific hostname.
C:\ping DC1
One way in which to determine whether or not a specific Domain Controller is listening for LDAP queries is to telnet to the IP address of the DC and specify either port 389 or port 3268. For example, from a command prompt type the following command: "telnet <IP address of the Domain Controller> <Port (389 or 3268)>"
C:\ telnet 10.10.10.14 389
If the Telnet application does not respond with "Could not open connection to the host," the LDAP protocol is running on this specific port.
