Audit mode and joining a domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I've seen this question here before, but haven't found much of an answer yet. How can you use the /audit pass and *still* join a machine to the domain?

     

    Technet says it should be possible: "If you use sysprep /audit to boot to audit mode, the computer will be removed from a domain. You must rejoin the computer to a domain in audit Mode." 

     

    Found here: http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/e1ed6a83-a5b5-41e6-a088-2eb9d64a4b7e1033.mspx?mfr=true bottom of page, but I assume they're wrong as no one has been able to show how.

     

    Which leads to the conclusion that if you're using /audit mode, no matter how nicely you joined your machine to a domain, it will be removed from it. This only leaves the oobeSystem pass in the unattend.xml to rejoin it to a domain, possibly with a script or some other command added to a SynchronousCommand.

     

    Has anyone managed to do this, and if so how?

     

    Thanks,
