Enable or disable Global Catalog by command

We can enable or disable Global Catalog for a domain controller in Active Directory Sites and Services > NTDS Settings Properties.

We can also perform "dsmod server" command to enable or disable Global Catalog. This is my lab environment.

I would like to disable Global Catalog in DC01.

1. On DC01, log in as Domain Administrator.
2. Launch "Command Prompt" as Administrator.
3. Perform "dsmod server "CN=DC01,CN=SERVERS,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" -isgc no

The Global Catalog was disabled in DC01.

Remark: To enable Global Catalog, type parameter "-isgc yes".
