Standalone media in SCCM 2012 R2: Join a domain

I'm using SCCM 2012 R2 to deploy operating systems via a USB standalone image and task sequence.

With the standalone media, our PCs will still have a network connection, and upon boot-up into the USB SSCM environment, we are specifying an IP, subnet and DNS.

However, the PCs are not joining the domain via the "Join Domain" task sequence.

I've read about a djoin option using MDT's "Offline Join Domain" task sequence, or via a custom script, but it seems a little burdensome.

Any tips on why this isn't working or how we can get it to work?

Maybe the network driver is no working or the account used to add is locked etc.

Check your last smsts.log or upload it here.

The account is fine. I use it daily.

The network driver is fine as well because this is the same task sequence used to deploy via the network.

You cannot join a domain (easily) with offline media.
