Hi guys, I wish to use netdom to join machines to the domain.
I know that netdom is builtin with Windows 2008, but it is not by default on Windows XP or Windows 7.

Question/s:
1) Have you any of you used netdom on a windows xp/windows 7 machine?
2) What file/s do you need to run it from a windows xp/7 machine?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I've run it plenty of times from XP (part of support tools)  you just need the netdom executable.   In Windows 7 you can also get it.  http://iboyd.net/index.php/2009/10/23/windows-7-is-missing-netdom-exe/

I haven't used it much in 7 as my work machine is still XP...running 7 in the lab but don't use netdom a ton from my lab clients.

thanks

I know this is old but I've recently had to do this on Windows 7 and there's an additional file that is needed.  %systemroot%\system32\en-us\netdom.exe.mui should be copied as well (or whichever language you require).  Otherwise the .exe returns no output.

netdom.exe should be copied from the appropriate bit-level machine i.e. x64 to x64.
