This might be a permission issue where your account does not have the right to create new objects in the default container.

You may want to create the accounts manually in the respective locations then join the computer to the domain, or verify your permissions.

Does clients get joined to domain, have you got message that "Computer joined to domain.com successfully" ?
After reboot are you able to view domain.com in my computer properties of client on system tab ?

If yes, then there must be issue with AD sites and subnets
You have not configured AD sites and subnets properly in that case most probably

Try below
Check all domain controllers in all sites and check if account is got created on any another site DC
Also run replication in each site and then check on local DC if account is got replicated there

Once you configured proper computer network subnet to appropriate site, then this issue will not occurs

Let me know if this resolves your issue

Pretty short description of problem, but will give it a try. I presume that you are trying to add a computer to a domain via control panel of the system. A success message is shown, but when you look in AD with AD Users and Computers tool you don't see the machines.

Chances are they are just being added to an OU that you are not looking in. Try funning a "find" to see where the computers are added. Switch to advanced view mode and you will be able to see the object path to the object, which will show you which OU to look in to find the computers you added.

Do the following from any server
dsquery computer -name *computer you joined*

This should give you the OU your objects are being created in.

You must run the redircmp command from an elevated command prompt on DC.

The syntax:
redircmp cn=computers,dc=domain,dc=com

In your case:
redircmp cn=computers,dc=domain

Then do replication between DCs

Then try to join computers to domain, they will created in default computers container
