Several ways to do this,  you can use vbscript or powershell. Check out Ashely's blog

In a nutshell you are exporting from domain A and importing into your test domain.

Let me know what questions you have on that

Thanks

Mike

You have three questions open on this now.  

If you are trying to reproduce a test server in an isolated Testlab environment like two of your other posts suggests then you dont need all these questions.  

I have suggested that you you just create a backup or P2V your current active server into an isolated environment and that is it, job done.  You dont set up a lab buy trying to do all the little bits that make up a server one at a time.
