  • In my environment I have a service account I created and applied the permissions to it and a dedicated OU for newly imaged machines as described in your post. I've also tried the delegation wizard and specifically making the user domain admin. I don't think it's a big deal, but the only way I can get machines to join the domain with this service account is by using the following properties in the customsettings.ini:




    Any idea why the DomainAdmin,DomainPassword,DomainAdminDomain, properties will not allow the user to join users to the domain through MDT? I can join machines manually after the deployment fails with the account. When I look in the deployment log it shows that it's trying to join the domain, but cannot locate DNS (DHCP has correct DNS settings, and DNS records are correct obviously since I can join machines manually). Also the ZTI log shows it has tried too many time to join the domain count=4. I'd appreciate your thoughts.

  • Usually they are marked read. If they are not, you can reload the page or hover with the mouse over your avatar in the top menu and remove the notification from there.

  • Understood. One more thing - wasnt the notification deleted if you clicked on it? I click on your notification about new reply, get to the post, but the notification is still shining.

  • Any guidance on how to pull the IP address from an Azure Virtual Machine?  I'd like to parse the VM's in my subscription and then output the VM name, resource group and IP address
