I'll look for netdom - last I checked it was only in later versions of Windows
- Vista and higher. Maybe there's a download for it for XP - XP is the primary
version of Windows that I'm interested in provisioning. Furthermore, AFAICT

reboot. Maybe if the script runs at the right time it will be okay...hard to

Point taken - I'll have to be careful with security on the script. However, I
also have an account set up that has absolutely no privileges on my domain
except to join workstations, so at least it's not a full-blown administrative

mitigate some of that risk.
