Hi guys I hope you are well and can assist.
I would like to track down details about the join domain process for a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine.
I have found the log file netsetup.log in the debug folder, but when I open it up, it is empty.
Is this file still used to log information about join domains for Windows Server 2008 systems, as it was in earlier versions of windows?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Netsetup.log doesn't seem to work in Win 2008. You can use netdiag tool to troubleshoot Domain join network related issues.
