ZTIConfigure and Domain Join RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hoping someone can point me in the right direction; We are using MDT 2012 update 1 to deploy Windows server 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 R2.  (I'm fairly new to this, took over the process from someone who quit, so I'm learning on the fly)  We recently had an issue where security deployed a new GPO to rename and disable the local administrator account, so we need to build with a new id, which is when we discovered that windows 2008 and 2012 are acting differently in the way the Domain Join is behaving.  On 2008 we can control when the domain join happens by where we put the "Recover From Domain" Task, but on windows 2012 it always joins the domain via the Unattend.xml; we can see in the BDD log where zticonfigure is injecting the domain join information into the unattend.xml file, which does not happen on 2008.  I can't locate the trigger for this, I need this domain join to be much later in the process which is working fine for our 2008 build.  Odd thing here is, it appears to only do this on one domain, our test domain.

    Thank you,

  • First you should update your MDT to the latest version. MDT 2012 doesn't support Windows Server 2012 R2. I haven't had any issues with domain join and Windows Server 2012 R2 using MDT 2013.
