Netdom is a command-line tool that is built into Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. It is available if you have the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) server role installed. It is also available if you install the Active Directory Domain Services Tools that are part of the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on member server.

To use netdom, you must run the netdom command from an elevated command prompt. To open an elevated command prompt, click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator

netdom join <Computer> /domain:<Domain.com> /ud:<Domain>\Domainuser> /pd:<password>
Remove brackets

Replace computer name with your server name
Replace domain with your domain and user
Also we have not entered OU path, hence server account will be created in default computer container
After this command run successfully you must restart the server

NETDOM /Domain:MYDOMAIN /user:adminuser /password:apassword MEMBER
      MYCOMPUTER /JOINDOMAIN


Replace My Domain with your domain name and My Computer with host name of server.


You can also try rejoining the server to domain normally, It will create Object automatically.
