I'm working with several systems, all Win 10 1709 all have same image.  On one of them netdom works wonderfully, on the other two I'm working with running netdom returns " ' netdom is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"  Searching for "netdom" returns no results.  Why would it be working on some machines, but not others?

My guess is that netdom is not part of those builds. What command exactly are you trying to run?

netdom query fsmo, but the thing is we use the same image across all machines, netdom is only present on a few machines.

Perhaps check if it exists but not in the PATH variable?
dir netdom.exe /s/a/b

I ran dism /online /get-features | more to see if RSAT was loaded, didn't see it, is there another way to check for this?

Try the Windows Side by Side folder:
C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-d..-commandline-netdom_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.14393.347_none_41ebe92b6983d7ab

If so copy netdom.exe from that location to C:\Windows\system32.
