View Full Version : Sample Active Directory

At work we're wanting to test out some applications and how they connect to Active Directory + Exchange. Naturally, we don't want to connect it up to our production AD, or Exchange.

Does anyone know of a "sample" active directory that can be downloaded and imported into, for example, a sandpit domain controller, that contains a number of dummy users, with an appropriate organisational hierarchy, different groups etc. implemented and so on?

Why not use a virtual machine to install MS Windows Server into and play to your heart's content?

Yes, that's the intention, but it would be nice to be able to have a couple of hundred sample users + groups populated into it.

Import your production data into a sandbox virtual environment running AD?
