  10. For Scope, select Subtree.

  11. For Filter, enter the following:

    (&(objectcategory=siteLink)(siteList=cn=<SiteName>,[RETURN]
    cn=sites,cn=configuration,<ForestRootDN>))
  12. Click Run.

Using a command-line interface

> dsquery * "cn=inter-site transports,cn=sites,cn=configuration,<ForestRootDN>"[RETURN]
-filter "(&(objectcategory=siteLink)(siteList=cn=<SiteName>,
                  [RETURN]
cn=sites,cn=configuration,<ForestRootDN>))" -scope subtree -attr name

' This code displays the site links associated with the specified site
' ------ SCRIPT CONFIGURATION ------
strSiteName = "<SiteName>" ' e.g. Raleigh ' ------ END CONFIGURATION --------- set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE") strSiteDN = "cn=" & strSiteName & ",cn=sites," & _ objRootDSE.Get("ConfigurationNamingContext") strBase = "<LDAP://cn=Inter-site Transports,cn=sites," _ & objRootDSE.Get("ConfigurationNamingContext") & ">;" strFilter = "(&(objectcategory=siteLink)" ...
