Joining a Windows 8.1 PC to a domain
Posted on 2014-01-02
I'm pretty new to Windows 8 and I'm trying to join this Lenovo Ultrabook to our domain. I'm logged in with the primary account (I think it's a local admin, but I can't even find where to check for that in Windows 8.1)... when I hit the "change settings" from the system properties, the "Network ID" button is grayed out. And I believe that's where I need to go to join it to a domain.
Now, I understand that the Windows 8 Home edition cannot do this, but I also can't figure out where to find if it's Home, Pro, or Enterprise. When I go to the system properties it just describes the OS as "Windows 8.1" with no other information. Can anyone help me out with this headache? Thanks!
