Secure script to add PCs to the domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, we are currently being tasked to utilize VMWare Mirage to upgrade our remote PCs from Windows XP to Windows 7 and readd them to the domain in a secure manner over and internet/vpn connection. We are concerned with storing AD credentials on the PCs in order to image the computers and also concerned with the script being used to join unauthorized PCs to the domain.

    Is there a secure way to store the AD credentials on the images we are pushing down within a script?

    Is there a way to pre-stage computer names in AD and only allow a certain username to join pre-staged PCs within AD?
