  • DSRM mode on Server Core

    On Server Core how do I tell that I have actually booted in Directory Service Restore Mode?
    I have used
    bcdedit /set safeboot dsrepair
    and rebooted, but ntds service is still running, and it did not ask for the DSRM password, which makes me think that I am not in DSR mode.
    On Server Core we have no graphical interface that tells us "You are in Directory Restore Mode". Is there a registry entry or whatever to verify which mode the server is in?
