  • Hello,
    Thank you for posting in our TechNet forum.

    What credentials do we use when we add computer to the domain? If we use normal domain user account, by default, an Active Directory domain environment allows any authenticated domain user the ability to add workstations to said domain 10 times.

    Note– This limit does not apply for any user account which is a member of domain admins or enterprise admins group.

    We can see this setting based on the following steps:

    1.Log in to the DC server as domain admin or enterprise admin.
     
    2.Go to Server Manager > Tools > ADSI Edit.

    3.In console expand default naming context and select the correct domain.

    4.Then right click on it and select Properties.

    5. Once list is open find the attribute called ms-DS-MachineAccountQuota. This is the attribute responsible for above limit. By default its set to 10. If we set it to 0, it will disable this limit and otherwise the value can adjust based on the requirements.


    We can try the following methods:

    1. Use an Administrative Account
    2. Raise The Limit From 10

    For details we can refer to Step-By-Step: Allowing or Preventing Domain Users From Joining Workstations to the Domain.
