Windows Server 2008 R2
Joined to domain and contained in DMZ. Server is unable to communicate with domain, intentionally.
I have a developer who is writing a .NET app and needs to test LDAP user queries, locally from the server. I'm researching how to setup a local LDAP instance on this server. I thought the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services role might do the trick, but I'm unable to connect to the instance I installed with ADSI Edit. I'm either doing something wrong or misinterpreting this role.
I'm researching alternative LDAP solutions and my research led me to ApacheDS: http://directory.apache.org/apacheds/
Would ApacheDS be a good solution to allow us to build a container of users, for test queries? Or is there a Windows feature I can take advantage of? Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.
