We are having a requirement to add the PC's to domain but we cannot provide local admin rights to the users. There is a account which have delegation to add the PC's to domain and it can be provided when asked for but the user is not getting the option change the Domain information in system Properties.
Is there any registry value where we can provide the access to the local User so that he can modify the settings. I have also tried to use a script to join a PC to domain but it in not working.

    This will not be possible unless the window (sysdm.cpl)  is opened using administrative rights. You can use the netdom tool and psexec to remotely do the task.

    Remote domain join using NetDom & PSexec

    Above link will work for XP as well.

    Accepted Solution

    Windows XP and Windows 7
