    path        => 'DC=shoneslab,DC=win,DC=com',
    city        => 'Atlanta',
    state       => 'GA',
    postalcode  => '30329',
    country     => 'US',
}

Development

TODO - Precheck required for OU, Group and Users. Throws error if the forest/Domain Controller/AD is not configured.

TODO - Incorporate more attributes to the types

TODO - Update Features

TODO - Need to test on versions other than Win2012R2

TODO - Acceptance Testing Scripts
