I can install an image remotely successfully without any user input, except that in order to gain 'domain' access which is what i cannot do as I keep receiving this message:

"the user you have specified is not permitted to join the machine to the domain.  would you like to proceed for now and try joining a domain later?"

BUT in the 'ristndrd.sif' file which is the new version of answer file ive added the following:

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword = "XXXXX"

but not sure what command for the user account needs to be added, as Im thinking is this the reason why I cannot allow domain access.  Although it is not important to do it this way it would like to know how to do it.

In the OU/Gp - ive right clicked, selected properties and selected 'Default domain policy', edit and added a USER account so that it will allow domain access in the following:

- Add workstatations to the domain
- Logon as a batch job

net stop binlsvc
net start binlsvc
ipconfig /registerdns
gupupdate /force

still does NOT work.  can anyone assist?
