    option and click Next.
    On the Add Roles and Features Wizard notice, click Add Features to install roles, services, and
    features that are needed by Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services.



 

5. On the Select Features step, enable the .NET Framework 3.5 Features option (if it is not already
     installed, then leave it as it is). Active Directory 2012 requires .NET Framework 3.5 be installed.   
     Click Next.




6. On the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services step, click Next.




7. On the Confirm Installation Selections step, review your selections, and click Install

11. Enter a name for your instance, for example "LdaptestApp," and then click Next.








12. Verify the port numbers for LDAP connections, and then click Next.



13. Choose Yes, create an application directory partition, and then enter a unique partition name
      by using X.500 path syntax. For example: "CN=LadaptestApp, DC=Ldaptest, DC=local". When
      you have finished entering your partition name, click Next.




14. Verify the paths to the AD LDS files for this instance, and then click Next.




15. Choose an account for your service account. (Note: I chose to use the network service account.)
      Once you have chosen an account, click Next.

      account, Administrator) Once you have chosen an account, click Next.





17. Choose one of the following LDIF files to import; these will be used to create user accounts.
  • MS-User.LDF



18. Verify your installation options, and then click Next.




19. The wizard will begin to install the requisite files and create your instance; this may take several
       minutes to complete. When the wizard has completed, click Finish.

1.  Here I used JXPlorer for testing the AD LDS Connection. Enter proper details for testing the connection.


 

2. Once Connection established successfully, Tree will display with all the information.
