Enable Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services

In the "Programs and Features" control panel, click the "Turn Windows features on or off" and enable the AD LDS feature: 

 

Launch the wizard

It is located in the app menu, under Windows Administrative Tools:

In the wizard, I chose to create a single instance, named TestAD1, with the default LDAP ports 389 and 636 (for SSL connection). 

Then I chose to create an Active Directory Partition and named it "CN=MyTestPartition1,DC=local,DC=example,DC=com":

Browse the AD with ADSI Edit

Launch ADSI Edit and choose Action / Connect to...

 

Add nodes with ADSI Edit

Right click on a node and choose New / Object: 

 

Connecting Apache Directory Studio to this AD instance

Make sure to select the JNDI provider:
