Creating a replicate or a mock SDE in a local environment?

My department is wanting to test out new Utilities Network, and we where curious about finding a way to circumvent the SDE requirement when creating a utilities network. At present we would need to run the network in an enterprise SDE, and I was hoping I might be able to test features out before I push creating the network in our SDEs. Normally this type of stuff would be done on a replicate file geodatabase, but it would seem that the Utilities Network requires an SDE to run. Is there a way I can simply locally create a SDE to which to run this, or perhaps trick ArcGIS into thinking a file geodatabase is an SDE?
