Hi Experts,
I have the vMA installed.
Now I have to join it to the domain, but the command is not working:

The command in the manual is :
sudo domainjoin-cli join testdomain administrator

When I enter the pass, it sys, try again.

Where is the problem ?

I would try it again making sure you are using the fully qualified domain name, i.e. testdomain.local and testdomain\administrator.

Otherwise try running the wizard again with sudo "system-config-network-tui"

Also, when you run sudo for the first time in a session, you will first be prompted for the vi-admin password, assuming you're logged in as vi-admin.  MAke sure you type this PW first.

the vma has an IP of my management vlan.
But this is different to my production vlan and AD.
I think this is the problem right ?
do you know how to change the stic ip in the vma ?

when I am logged into vma, I cannot enter the command :
sudo domainjoin-cli join domain administrator

It says, no such command domainjoin-cli

How can it be ?
