1 Solution
uhh.. username and password?
if you want to add your PC to a excisting domain you need a account with administrator rights..

Oh.. and when you try to add it to a domain.. reboot first and right after the reboot join the domain (don't browse thru the network) otherwise you might get a error "credentials failed" or something like that.

That depends on how the NetAdmin set up the remote access.  Ask her for those missing details

to Goldwig:

actually you dont need administrator rights to join computer to domain but an account that has rights to join the computer to the domain. (uh, not very clear...)

What I mean is that a "normal" user account (separate from admin) can join computer to the domain if it has the rights to do so. Domain admins can add specific userrights to any account.

And the Answer to withdraw's question would be:

you need an useraccount (any account) that "has rights to join computer to domain".
