  • hi

    Do the domainadmin account have rigths to join the domain?

    Have you tried to remove MachineObjectOU to se if the domainadmin acoount is working in the default cn=computer in AD?

    What is the C:\Windows\debug\netsetup.log showing??

    Kind regards

  • The BDD.log should shed some light on the issue. Ensure you have basic logging enabled, if not both simple and dynamic logging.

  • It sounds like maybe the domain account you are using does not have the necessary permissions to add a machine to the OU. See - http://blog.coretech.dk/mip/creating-a-joindomain-account-for-use-with-sccm-osd/

    netsetup.log does not shows any recent event regarding client end issues , it shows old events regarding it self mdt server.

    Yes i just removed OU line but same its not working although i remove join domain line and trying to set computer name from mdt installation wizard so it does not change machine name.

    Dan_Vega :

    I give my account to join domain and my account has enterprise level permissions.

    MDT Guy :

    How can i get Bdd.log file and if not found  how can i enable logging as you suggested.

  • Logging details are in the forum FAQ

    Logs are very important. https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Mention any customizations you have made.
