This is complicated. It depends if you mean connected users, or possible 
users. I'm not 100% sure that ADS could store 1 million entries, but I 
bet it can. If you want to know if we can handle 1 million connected 
users, I bet the answer is no. I'm afraid that we can't even handle more 
than 32765 simultaneous connected users, but odes it make sense ? 
Generally speaking, a user does not keep a connection open for hours ...

Can you told us if users mean "connected" users, or just entries in the 
server ?

yep, for sure. If you don't have the right indices, then your server 
will just crawl down. However, the best solution is definitively to use 
a ldif file if you want to import millions of entries.
