I need to create a working test environment of a domain we have. I need to have all the data from the production environment in the test environment. What is the best way to go about doing this?
Here are some ideas I have but I am not sure if there is a better/recommended way of doing this.
- Use Vmware converter to create a VM of one of the production DCs
- create a VM and promo it on the real domain and move the vm to my test environment.
- use some kind of backup utility to backup the domain info and restore it to my vm I created.
Thanks in advance for any help!
