Problem with Joining Domain

We have a network where a user without Administrative privleges is able to join computers that he reformats on the domian. We don't know how he is doing it and need to prevent him from doing this and also need to know how he is doing this before we contact the managment. Besideds Administrator's privilages what other methods are there? Also is there anything on windows Event Logs that we can be looking for? We also noticed that his newly rebuilded computer has port 2002 open on it.

In ADUC check his account properties and hit the member of tab, what security groups is he a member of?  You can start there...Account Operator privledges and Allow join computers to domain are other options that would allow that user to join computers to the domain...

But that is limited to only ten, it sounds like he has passed that limit?

The limit is 10 different hostnames not ten times the same hostname.

HI, thank you for the responses. No he has not passed this limit. We need to lock his account to the way it was before. In ADUC he is not a member of anything. However ms-ds-machineaccountquota has been altered. How do we change it back to Not Set? Right now he has a long binary code. Even if you switch it to decimal it still shows about 30 groups of 3 digit numbers.
