How do I extract user accounts and OU structure from production domain to test domain?

I am building a DR site with exact domain structure.  I want to test with all the same user accounts and OU structure.  What tool can I use to extract user accounts and OU structure?  

Thanks.

it wouldnt work if the name was different......then you would have to look at other tools such as ADMT but you wont be able to automatically create an exact replica
