After being put on ice the quick hitter series is back.
I downloaded one of my favorite active directory tools called ADFIND from MVP Joe Richards
So far adfind seems to work great with Windows Server 8. I have not tested every switch but so far so good.
I really like the adfind shortucts and it is a great way to do things like quickly find the schema verision. adfind -sc schver
As you can see the schema version in Windows Server 8 Developers Preview is 51
There are other ways to find the schema version if you don't have adfind installed. Santhosh has a good blog entry where he outlines other methods such as adsiedit and dsquery.
If you are keeping track or are asked in a trivia/interview situation here are the AD schema versions throughout the OS Versions
