I was curious if anyone knew of any other handy commands to use to test to make sure your domain controller is functioning correctly.

These are the two I use most.

    replmon = Replication Monitor = making sure your DCs "talk" to each other.

    repadmin - command-based version of replmon
    netdom - Work with trusts, computer accounts, renaming domain controller, find out your fsmo role holders, etc.
    rendom - Rename your domain
    nltest - helps you perform network related test
    dsastat - can compare ntds.dit between specified domain controllers to test for stuff such as replication
    sdcheck - check for permission inheritance on AD objets
    acldiag.exe + dsacls.exe - viewing AD object permissions
    ntdsutil - create application partitions, authoritative restores, clean up orphaned data, transfer/sieze fsmo roles
