The simplest method of using DNSLINT is to verify DNS records for domain
controllers. To do this, run:

DNSLINT /AD IP of dc you want to check /S IP of DNS server authoritative for MSDCS
subzone

It also has the /QL functionality in order to check SRV records and the like.

This will run and generate an HTML-based report of records on this DNS server for
AD, confirming that CNAME records match up with A records. The easiest way to
interpret the results is to scroll to the very bottom of the page and look at the
summary report - any warnings or errors will be noted. All issues in the body of
the report are color-coded for easy viewing as well.

The difference between DNS and NDS

  Novell Directory Services(NDS) - Novell Directory Services (NDS) is a popular software product for managing access to computer resources and keeping track of the users of a  network , such as a company's  intranet , from a single point of administration. Using NDS, a network administrator can set up and control a  database  of users and manage them using a  directory  with an easy-to-use graphical user interface ( GUI ). Users of computers at remote locations can be added, updated, and managed centrally. Applications can be distributed electronically and maintained centrally. NDS can be installed to run under  Windows NT , Sun Microsystem's Solaris, and IBM's  OS/390  as well as under Novell's own  NetWare  so that it can be used to control a multi-platform network. NDS is generally considered an industry  benchmark  against which other products, such as Microsoft's Active Directory, must compete. Lucent Technologies plans to integrate NDS into its own QIP product
