The Windows 2003 at Virginia Tech Web site documents the advantages of this domain system and provides information about joining.

The Windows 2003 pilot Active Directory (w2k-pilot) is maintained by the Microsoft Implementation Group (MIG) for use by faculty and staff for testing clients, servers, and applications in a non-production environment. The w2k-pilot domain has all the features and functionality of the production Active Directory (Hokies), but without the same user data. For help in setting up testing in this domain, please contact the MIG staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
