Hi Dallas,

You should be able to save and export the XML file to import the config to another machine.  When we moved servers, I did this same thing to import the config to the new server install of GADS

Dallas,

While in the production instance of Google Apps Directory Sync, Go to File > SAVE AS.  It will open a dialog window that lets you browse to a location to save the config XML file.  Then just email or save the file so you can save on the Dev instance machine.  You then just go to File > Open and browse to where the file is.  That's it, it will load the configurations into your Dev instance
