I am looking for active directory alternatives for a developer environment. The solution needs to do nothing more than contain an OU structure and some users that can be authenticated. Preferably it should be possible to install this alternative on Windows 10. As of right now, I know of AD LDS (which I never got authenticating) and then perhaps https://jumpcloud.com
- but they are not free and I am guessing that the standard LDAP:// path strings will not be transferable to that solution, thus needing to recode the authentication solution. The options that seem to be left are to install a Windows server 20XX with the AD DS role set up, which I preferably woulf like to avoid.
