creating a test domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I was wondering if it's possible to create a test domain on a VM that I created on my laptop and play around with it including adding other  computers to it(other VMs set on the same laptop) with just setting a made up domain name instead of buying one. I want to mess around and improve my skills but I am not sure if I have to get an official registered domain name for things to work or if making something random up just for the DC setup is enough

  • Hi,

    Yes that is possible. You can enable Hyper-V under Windows 10 so you can create VM's
    Then create a Windows Server VM and install and configure Active Directory services and a fqdn with DNS.
