I have an Active Directory instance set up on a VM, and have set up a number of users and groups. I was wondering how I would go about testing this instance e.g. testing the connection, and verifying the users and groups.

Testing what connection? Verifying the users and groups in what way? – joeqwerty May 30 '12 at 22:39

I suggest you

  1. Create a user in the new domain
  2. create a second VM with a client OS (Win7, WinSvr)
  3. connect the client to the domain and,
  4. login with the user account created in #1
