I am developing a web application that needs to authenticate against an Active Directory Domain Controller.
Currently I have no access to a Domain Controller, and the customer will only provide access later on in the development process. I need to have the integration ready by then.
What options do I have in order to run my own domain controller and perform some tests? I have thought of the following:
- Samba as AD
- run a "real" AD server on the cloud
I have no idea how easy is to set up each of those options, and how similar to the real thing this will be.
Can you provide some advice?
