Domain Controllers and DNS Requests

We have been asked by the Windows team to give them a report of DNS requests and traffic from servers to a particular Domain Controller. Is this possible and where wouldi start?

 

Thanks in advance for the help

UCMDB can discover the tcp connectivity between various servers, however it won't caputure the content of the TCP packet.

 

However, you can use RUM to capture traffic and send to BSM. And BSM to UCMDB using integration.

Re: Domain Controllers and DNS Requests

But shouldn't there be a way to show that traffic between the Nodes and the DC's?
So thinking outside the box, what about just looking for systems that make TCP port 53 calls to the DC's? We dont need to see the actuall packets of the infromation inside the packets.
