Working with AD DS services without be a DC

Hello community,
Is it possible to create an AD environment to test some script without having DC or OU?
I need to start working with AD module and DC tasks but I have not the ability to create one.
Is there any platform that could provide me access to these technologies without having to configure DC?

Thanks in advance

Well, you can install the ActiveDirectory module (which is part of the Remote Server Administration Tools package), but the commands won’t be able to do anything without a domain to talk to.

Personally, I’d just create a virtual machine running Windows Server (evaluation copy is fine), promote it to a DC, and script away!

In short, no, those commands require a DC to run against. No way around that, although as Dave notes you could easily do a self contained VM running a DC.

Thank all…
These was my thoughts for it.
I’m very very happy you assisted me…
I will follow your instructions…
