comment Windows Server Connected to Domain Without Being Domain Controller
Regarding your update, that is almost exactly what I want. The only thing more is being able to have the test domain authenticate users against the corporate domain AD.

You are pretty close in your description. It's less about testing the authentication and more about using the same login on each of 4-5 different test VMs, preferably using the corporate AD domain. You are talking about setting up a one-way trust, right?

@MDMarra I thought I had explained what I was looking for before asking the questions (second paragraph above). I want a Windows Server that can authenticate user logins to the virtual machines running on it against the Active Directory of the corporate network without the server being a DC.

So, if I understand correctly, the virtual machines can look to my server for logging in users without the need for the server itself to be a DC, simply a member of the domain?

Apologies, I meant (and have edited to state) an Active Directory domain =)

comment How do I find if there is a rogue DHCP server on my Network?
Use a program like DHCP-Find (softpedia.com/get/Network-Tools/Network-IP-Scanner/…) in conjunction with TCPDump/Wireshark to trigger DHCP responses.
